Dianne Bos was born in Hamilton, Ontario, received her BFA from Mount Allison University in Sackville, New Brunswick, and currently divides her time between the foothills of the Rockies and the Pyrenees.  Since 1981, her photographs have been exhibited nationally and internationally in group and solo exhibitions. Among her many exhibitions are: Light Echo (2009), McMaster Museum of Art, in collaboration with Astronomer Doug Welch; Reading Room (2011), Cambridge Galleries; See Attached (2013), with photographer Sarah Fuller, University of Lethbridge Art Gallery; The Sleeping Green: No Man's Land 100 years later (2017), Canadian Cultural Centre Paris, which will travel to museums in Canada in 2018. In addition, her work is part of the current traveling exhibition Poetics of Light, Contemporary Pinhole Photography (2017), first shown at the New Mexico Museum of Natural History, New Mexico.  Her photographic practice spans site-specific installations, handmade cameras, light and sound works, and public art, as evidenced in projects such as Midnight Sun Camera Obscura (2016), a traveling exhibition for Dawson City, Yukon.  In 2016 one of Bos' Galaxy Projection Devices was part of the traveling exhibition Seeing at the Science Gallery, Trinity College, Dublin.  

As an artist, Dianne Bos makes use of a multitude of tools, devices, and technologies, to formulate and extend her investigations of journeying, time, and the science of light.
