Description
Diener provides a youthful perspective on vulnerability, identity, and belonging in these evocative photographs from early in her career. Her body of work Familiar Moments focuses on her quest for self and a sense of home, stemming from her dual citizenship in Germany and America. In these staged portraits, the artist often appears with strangers in public or in their homes, creating a dubious family album of her feelings, fantasies, and stereotyped views of family in settings that are foreign, yet still soothing and intimate.
