Dana Vannoy was a Professor of Sociology Emeriti at the University of Cincinnati, where she taught and conducted research for thirty years. For the last decade she has studied and practiced the art of photography.
Bringing a sociological eye and keen sense of observation to her work, having fun with the visual arts has become her passion. Vannoy is Vice President on the Board of Directors of the Photographic Society of America, and is honored as a ‘fellow’ of the society.
Her work has been published and has appeared in over fifty different international exhibitions.
Vannoy enjoys ‘seeing the beauty’ in people, in nature, or in the creations of human beings, bringing the essence of that beauty to others in strong, colorful images is her goal and passion in life.
During the summer, Vannoy resides near Grand Traverse Bay in Williamsburg, Michigan and in the winters, heads south to Naples, FL.
