D. Bryon Darby (b. 1979) was born and raised in the high-desert mountains of northern Utah where he received a BFA in Graphic Design from Utah State University (2001) and an MFA in Photography from Arizona State University (2011). Central to Darby's creative work is the relationship between place and meaning. Darby investigates perceptions of place as mediated through culture, technology, and experience and uses photography as a means to question and engage with the unfolding world. He currently resides in Logan, Utah where he is Photography Coordinator and Lecturer of Photography at Utah State University.
