Diane Bielik is a photographer based in London. Her varied work explores common ideas of impermanence, commemoration and death. The veracity of the photograph and its reputation as a truth teller is manipulated and played with throughout her practice.
She completed an MA in photography at London College of Communication in December 2010. In October 2011 Bielik’s work was featured in a site-specific solo exhibition in the Bradford photography festival ‘Ways of Looking’. Her work has been published in Source Magazine, BJP online, Axisweb, The Yorkshire Post, Telegraph and Argus and in the festival catalogue, ’Ways of Looking: Evidence’ edited by Anne McNeill.
She has been teaching photography in Further and Higher Education for over 16 years. She runs a Level 3 UAL course for 16-19 year olds at City of Westminster College and teaches MA and BA Photography at University of Hertfordshire.
