Brief Bio    [Return to top]

Daryl-Ann Saunders' fine-art photography focuses primarily on three series of work: On The Platform (night subway imagery), Solitary Life (Polaroid transfer landscapes) and Body Life (nudes). Daryl-Ann uses an array of traditional, digital and alternative photo processes including pinhole camera, Polaroid transfer, toning and hand coloring to express her imagery.

Saunders began as a self-taught performance and documentary photographer. She went on to study at The School of Visual Arts and The International Center of Photography, both in NYC. Working with a variety of editorial and corporate clients, her commercial work has been published worldwide.

Saunders' fine art work has been recognized by the Salmagundi Club of NY with a Certificate of Merit award and it was featured in a Polaroid Corporation advertising campaign that garnered a Kelly Award for Creative Excellence in Magazine Advertising. A two page article highlighting her night subway series, On The Platform, has been published in Double Exposure, the online publication of Photoworkshop.com and printed in Digital Imaging Magazine. Exhibited nationally, her fine art work is in the corporate collection of Pfizer, Inc., GE Corporation as well as in other collections, corporate and private.
