Dayna Desireé Bartoli


Dayna Desireé Bartoli (1987) is an artist from Arizona who works in various mediums including photography, bookmaking, and mixed media objects. She graduated from Arizona State University in 2010 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in photography and went on to receive a Master of Fine Arts degree in 2015 from the Trondheim Academy of Fine Art in Norway. Somewhat juxtaposing her education in the arts, Bartoli also worked in the medical field as an ophthalmic photographer for several years, photographing retinal blood vessels and circulation patterns. Many of her projects are driven by a fascination with natural phenomena and the language of medical and scientific representation.

Bartoli’s photographs have been published in Harper’s Magazine. She was named one of Lens Culture’s “21 New and Emerging Photographers” of 2013, and has been a featured artist on Art Photo Index.
