Diana Brennan Photography – 10% Discount

April 11, 2008

I really like photographer Diana Brennan. She’s an interesting, sweet and all around genuine person. She’s a nature lover too, like so many of us. Her photos are a study of natural history as she shoots in museums and I find them so interesting, I even grabbed my husband and showed him her photos because her subject matter isn’t typical and I like that it sets her apart from the pack. It made me think of natural history museums as a bit more of an exciting place to spend an afternoon too. I plan to bring my camera and use the lens as a more creative way to view displays going forward.

Last Fall I was at the Landesmuseum in Hannover and saw an amazing exhibit that I liked so much that I stayed in the exhibition hall for nearly 2 hours just gazing into the display cases. I wish I had taken photos and I remember being annoyed that I had forgotten my trust camera as I stood there amidst so many inspiring displays. If you’re in Hannover anytime soon the exhibit runs until May and is called Fantastische Riesen und bizarre Zwerge – Fr?chte und Samen der Sammlung Erika Schmidt which was all about large and small seed pods found all over the world curated by Prof. Dr. Erika Schmidt from the Institut f?r Landschaftsarchitektur in Dresden. I think if Diana Brennan could see this exhibit she’d be moved to photograph it for her own collection of photos because the seed pods, illustrations, and watercolors were amazing. I had never been so moved at a natural history museum before.

If you are interested in Diana’s work, she’s offering decor readers an exclusive 10% discount if you mention decor8 during checkout in the comments box. At that point, you’ll need to wait a few moments and Diana will send you a revised invoice (of how I wish Etsy would allow stores to create discount codes!).

Thank you Diana for sharing your fascinating and wonderful photography.
