  Frank Dituri

Frank Dituri uses the term bookmark to signify people. Just as the bookmark denotes a place in a book, a person or even the hand of a person denotes human activity of a certain kind in a certain place, in an otherwise sterile environment. A photograph of a tree could have been made today or a hundred years ago says Dituri. What gives the image a sense of time or place is the human presence.

Frank Dituri is a photographer who likes to transform the everyday, the recognizable and the obvious into images that border on the surreal. His play on rich black and white tonalities and composition heighten the overall mystery of his often somber images and give his work a unique esthetic effect and individual style. As a world traveler his work is influenced by his experiences. Mr. DituriÍs artwork is continuously exhibited in the United States, Europe and Asia. He has had numerous catalogs and books of his images published and has been reviewed by many important publications. His photographs can be found in many private and public collections. Mr. Dituri has been teaching full time for over thirty-two years and has given many workshops on photography worldwide. He is currently in the art department at C.W. Post, Long Island University and is also a teaching artist for the LTA/Guggenheim Museum Program.

The Benham Gallery has available a limited number of prints by Frank Dituri. We believe art is best sold on a one-to-one basis and will generally provide any reasonable information about the arist, including the artist's resume, background, and the availability of books and prints for sale. The Benham Gallery accepts most major payment types and transactions can be carried out by e-mail, phone, mail, or better yet - by stopping by in person so we can familiarize you with the the work. The pictures on this site are no match compared to seeing the real thing in person..
