Jamie Diamond's work is grounded in photography, video and performance. She investigates the dialogue surrounding representation and photography’s relationship to truth through a collaborated effort with strangers, mimes, and professional actors. Forging artificial relationships and making objects for the camera, she explores the inherent fictions and complex perspectives of photography.
As a Mana Residency recipient, Diamond used her time to develop new projects and present her work to the public. Premiering here is her never-before-seen series "Life in Fiction" as well as her work with the reborn community.
