Photography of Former Anchor Diana Pierce Featured in “Wander Without WiFi”
The Maple Grove Arts Center is currently featuring a husband and wife photography exhibit called “Wander Without WiFi.” It features the photography of former television news anchor Diana Pierce.
The wife is a familiar face to many: it’s retired Twin Cities television news anchor Diana Pierce. Pierce decided to trade in her anchor chair for a captain’s chair in a motor home about two years ago.
Pierce and her husband, Scott Bemman, started traveling and visiting national parks. They documented their journey by taking photos.
“It’s my personal take away on the best that God has created out there,” said Pierce, who has several photos posted on the couple’s website.
In the exhibit, you can see many well-known features of national parks, like geysers, canyons and arches. But the couple also documents the small moments in the parks, like leaves in a stream or a single, beautiful peak.
Capturing the northern lights, or auroras are a passion of Bemman. His favorite place to shoot is about fifty miles outside of Anchorage.
“What you have on your card when you pull it out of your camera is a moment in time that will never happen again,” said Bemman. “It’s never the same thing twice, it’s always different.”
Bemman says his wife convinced him to show off his photographs in public. Their exhibit “Wander without WiFi” is on display at the Maple Grove Arts Center through March 23.
