Diane Fox is a Senior Lecturer in the College of Architecture and Design at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville where she teaches photography and graphic design. Fox's current body of photographic work, "Unnatural History," is composed of images shot in various natural history museums and taxidermy shops in the US and Europe. Using reflection and the inclusion of elements meant to remain unseen, the work examines the edges between the real and imagined, nature and artifice, and reflects on the disconnection of the human/animal relationship.
Images from "UnNatural History" are cited in Giovanni Aloi's book Art and Animals and Taxidermy by Alexis Turner published by Thymes and Hudson. Solo and two-person exhibits of this work have been shown in a variety of spaces including the Los Angeles Center for Digital Photography, Los Angeles, CA, The Huntsville Museum of Art, Huntsvile, AL, the Erie Art Museum, Erie, PA; Greyfriars Art Space in Norfolk, England; Sarratt Gallery, Nashville, TN; Dom Muz Gallery, Torun, Poland; and Santa Reparata Gallery, Florence, Italy. Selected pieces have been exhibited in several juried shows including the Camera Club of New York, New York, NY and Prix de la Photographie in Paris, France.
