About Pic 2.jpg

'His dynamic photographs scream everything that is loved about film photography, from the lustrous and saturated colors, to the thoughtfully composed medium format frame.  Through all the aesthetics, Dia takes on documentary ideas to explore a place’s history and metamorphosis into a contemporary urban landscape.'
