Biography/Work Experience

Bill Diodato, a native New Englander, is an award winning commercial and fine-art photographer whose work has received worldwide exposure in many different media platforms, including magazines, books, movies and advertisements. Diodato continues to explore the fine line between his artwork and his commercial photography. His viewpoint is a cultivated response to popular culture and he draws upon an eclectic mix of influences from music and film to architecture and design. The resulting images are often controversial, compelling, and original. Bill’s first book entitled, c/o Ward 81 was released at the end of 2010. Since then, the project has garnered numerous awards along with critical acclaim.

I continue to explore the fine line between art and commerce. My viewpoint is a response to popular culture and I draw upon an eclectic mix of influences from music and film to architecture and design.

 Bills passion for photography and 20th century photo literature was recently recognized by Swann Galleries in a catalog of books from his library. This passion for books has led him to start publishing books through his own publishing company called Golden Section Publishing.

Bill’s book brings me back to the haunted cell in which I slept. Bill’s images confirm the feeling that I always had—that Ward 81 was and still is inhabited by many ghosts. '-Mary Ellen Mark



To find comfort among strangers is a surprise
and life's pleasure, thank you Bill.
