I met Norm several years back at Photolucida in Portland and was instantly struck with his work. Now with a new book out, I thought it would be great to introduce him to the Photostock community.
Norm Diamond spent over a year photographing estate sales in Dallas, Texas, where he lives. Photos from What Is Left Behind—Stories from Estate Sales have been shown at the Houston Center for Photography, the Davis Orton Gallery in Hudson, New York, and at the Griffin Museum of Photography in Winchester, Massachusetts. In May 2017 the Afterimage Gallery in Dallas, Texas, will display prints from this work as well. Based
on this series, he was named a finalist in the 2015 and 2016 Photolucida Critical Mass competitions. Pictures from his previous projects h
ave been exhibited in juried group shows including at the A Smith Gallery in Texas, PhotoPlace Gallery in Vermont, The Center for Fine Art Photography in Colorado, as well as several online galleries. His work has also been featured on several blogs: Lenscratch, Elizabeth Avedon, Julie Grahame, Slate.com, PDN Photo of the Day, and CityLab.com.
Diamond is now a fulltime fine art photographer after having had a long career in interventional radiology. He has studied with Debbie Fleming Caffery, Sean Kernan, Keith Carter, Arno Minkkinen, Aline Smithson, and, from 2013 to the present, he has been mentored by Cig Harvey. In addition to his teachers, he attributes much of his success in photography to his experiences as a physician.
