Doris Diamond




Through the years, the beauty of our planet called to Doris and photography became the agent for her to both experience and share what she saw.  After retiring from teaching elementary school, she began voraciously studying photography through many venues including the Osher Lifetime Learning Institute (OLLI) at Stony Brook University, many photography workshops, and online classes and webinars.

In 2016, Schiffer Publications published her collection of 40 photographic art cards.  Based on  the natural world, each image contains two or three photographs to form something completely new and unique.  She called it Gaia’s Vision Oracle Cards and worked with an author to create a book about the cards.  Several of her photographs have been chosen to appear in the magazine “Living the Photo Artistic Life.”

Her work has been exhibited at the BAFFA Gallery in Sayville, Art on Terry, Islip Art Museum, The National Association of Women Artists Gallery in NYC, the Salmagundi Gallery in Manhattan, The Art Guild in Roslyn, Bayard Cutting Arboretum,  Huntington Arts Council Gallery, The Smithtown Library, the Patchogue-Medford Library, and the Bayport-Blue Point Library.  Doris also debuted a one-person show entitled “In Our Hands:Everyday Sacred” in Stony Brook focusing on her environmental multicultural portraits.
