Diana Lui (b. 1968, Malaysia) graduated with a BA in Photography and Fine Art from the Art Center College of Design, Pasadena, California. Her works are widely recognised by many established art and photography institutions in Asia and Europe. Diana’s photographs can be seen in numerous permanent collections such as the Bibliothèque Nationale de France, Guangdong Museum of Art and Musée de la Photographie à Charleroi. In 2008, the Shanghai Museum awarded her the residency and scholarship of Concours du Consulat de France. She currently lives and works in France.

Lui’s ongoing project is to document what she calls "intimate/psychological/anthropological" portraits. This project has won France’s 20th Bourse du Talent, Kodak Critics’ Award, Belgium’s Prix National de la Photographie Ouverte du Musée de la Photographie à Charleroi, and it was a finalist for the 2008 Prix de la Fondation HSBC pour la Photographie.

In recent years, she has expanded into installation art. Her latest project explores the veil and its universal semantics in Europe and Northern Africa. She recently presented a series of striking portraits of women in traditional costumes from Tunisia at the Institut du Monde Arabe (Arab World Institute) in Paris.
