"Diana is one of the most creative photographers I've seen on Flickr in all the years I've been on here. She finds a way to challenge your preconceptions of beauty, by pushing the limits to where you are forced to redefine the word in order to fit her imagery into your definition! Such bold, fearless work by such a stunningly talented person is so rare. If there was a book of this work to buy, I would give it to all my friends as a gift! Thank you for your work, Diana!"
1st March, 2011
"Diana takes femininity to a new level with her art. She really perfects her crops, compositions, lighting, and I love looking at her black and white images (which, monochromes I am typically critical of!). She really exemplifies a woman behind the lens. She has a great fashion sense and a sensual style to her images. I love keeping up with her work and she truly blows me away as an artist.

"Just from a quick glance at her stream, I could tell that Diana had talent. I had already seen some of Diana's modeling in Brooke Shaden's work, and then discovered Diana's own stream, and was immediately amazed. Its one thing to be photographed by another person and an entirely different thing to photograph yourself, but Diana does this flawlessly. But besides that, her other work is gorgeous. Ive already gone through her stream several times and each time found something else that I have fallen in love with."
28th April, 2010
"i can honestly say you are one of those rare people who take photographs which hold nothing i have ever seen before. they are utterly intriguing and beautiful and timeless. they honestly look like something from a different, more wonderful world."

'Mary Jane' says:
"Diana is an amazing young talent and her work often conveys such incredible emotion and meaning.
She sees far beyond this world, that´s why her genuine style is a delight!
Her photostream is one of my favourites, and I look forward to watching her develop both skill and style, as she has so much potential...
Diana, wish you the best! You´r work is incredible, never forget that."
2nd April, 2010
"Diana, you are incredible. I know that sounds like an empty compliment, but trust me it is true. I have fallen in love with your photos. I find them fresh and unique and timeless and ripe with symbolism and mystery. Your stream is one of my favorites to visit because I know that I am going to find something special every time. I can come back again and again and I am never disappointed, I always find something new. That is really a special talent, to be able to pack so much into one photo that the viewer couldn't possibly see all that is in the frame with one viewing. But you do it, and it is magical to watch."

|Kelly Miller| says:
"Diana is without doubt one of the most fascinating, eclectic artists I've ever been lucky enough to come across, in front of and behind the camera. Her sense of humor and eye for beauty make her work stunning but the passion she puts into it makes them unforgettable."
12th February, 2010
"I've been a fan of Diana's art work since a year ago, I still remember the first time I saw her stream, I was totally blown away, and couldn't believe a girl at her age created those breathtaking pictures. During the past one year, I can't remember how many times I've gone through her stream over and over again. Her pictures are beautiful, well-executed, expressive; and she has definitely one of the strongest conceptual work on flickr. Now she started 365, I can't wait to see what she will do for her journey. I'll always keep my eyes on her work."

"Diana is a explorer, dreamer, thespian, and a truly genuine person. She not afraid to be herself. Her work is beautiful and original. I heart her."
13th September, 2009
"Your photos are AMAZING! They inspire me so much. Your ideas are so creative and executed perfectly. You're an edgey photographer and you're not afraid to take risks and I love it. You're the most unique photographer I know. =]"
26th August, 2009
"I stumbled upon Diana's work a short while ago, and I was impressed and inspired by her passion for photography and her capability to experiment. Diana obviously puts a considerable amount of time and thought into her shots and the result is extraordinary. She is determined and creative, and i do not doubt she will succeed in maintaining a name in the business, if thats what she decides for her future."
15th August, 2009
"One of my favourite flickr photographers of all time, Diana comes up with the most amazing and original concepts I've ever seen! :)"
6th August, 2009
"Diana's creativity is unlike anything I've seen before. Cryptic and mystical, her photos always leave you charmed and curious. Thank you for being so great. :)

"I've followed the lovely Diana Pinto for quite some time now. Her portraits are honest, well-taken, and full of emotion. I always enjoy looking through her stream. Her use of color and texture inspire me and she can tell beautiful stories with a camera. She has a great eye for photography and I know she's going to go very far! Keep up the great work and thank you for all the inspiration! Cheers and have a swell day =)"
4th June, 2009
"Diana is my ABSOLUTE favorite flickr-er, and as I've said before, I hold her work and opinions in very high esteem. Her work is consistently innovative and especially, avant-garde. A true ground breaker."

Tiffany S. says:
"Diana's work is beautiful, compelling and stunning. She goes above and beyond a pretty picture to create amazing conceptual works. No doubt one of the best young artists of today ♥"
12th February, 2009
"Diana is such an amazing photographer! Her pictures
are truly unique and inspiring. I know she will
go far with her amazing gift and I can't wait to see where
it will take her and what pictures she takes along the way! :)"

Love her photos. Experimental and original, the photos of Diana are unique! A photographer that will definately go far.
You're awesome Diana!"

Jhojay Yagmour says:
"Diana Pinto is such a talented and creative artist that should be watched for sure!
One of the best around here."
20th March, 2008
"Diana is one of those young talented artist that amazes me; One that has the natural ability to evoke such great emotion beyond her years. Her photo creations are her honest expressions and with her skills in lighting, composing, modeling and post editing makes her images some of the most impressive and powerful bodies of work that rivals the most experienced artists.
Diana has a promising future in art and photography and is someone to watch for...full of vision and creativity, modest, determined, kind and sometimes mysterious but always true to herself and her work.
Definitely a Flickr treasure to explore!!!"

"creative, colorful and delicate. Her work is simply amazing :D"

"Amazing body of work. I see that you put a lot of effort in your works, the make-up and setting. Inspiring. And I love your looks, very classic!!"

Emy Lou says:
"Diana Pinto i gave me one of those rare experiences in the world of online art and photogrpahy where you are desperately searching for something new to inspire you....and all of a sudden there she is. It really made my day finding her work. I've visited her gallery so many times just to look at the same work over and over. I love how she doesn't follow the crowd. Her work is unique and it is beautiful and appears effortless. Her concepts are just fantastic...simple yet they work so perfectly.
Not only is her work amazing but after reading her profile i can tell that she is a lovely, sweet girl with tons of passion and energy. If she is this good as a teenager then all i can say is that the world better watch out! This girl has talent and knows how to use it!"
5th October, 2007
First off shes gorgeous! Shes an amazing photographer the way she captures face expressions and her ideas are pure genius.
I love her crazy concepts and her way to edit..
keep it up you'll do great things :D"
14th September, 2007
Birta Rán says:
"Can't believe i haven't wrote her a Testimonial already!
Diana Pinto is an amazing photographer, her gallery has inspired me more than once or twice.
Her unique ideas are something you can't find anywhere else.
You're a beautiful girl Diana.
Keep your pictures coming !"
5th September, 2007
"Diana Pinto. Only pronounce the name: she is an artist.
But let's talk about your amazing work. I remember the first time I looked at your photostream. That really made my day.
I am so impressed by your work, it's creative and professional, thought-provoking and inspiring. You will make it and go far. And then when you are world-famous, I will say: I even adored her photos when she was fifteen and she was wow-wow-wow SO great!!"
22nd August, 2007
"Diana have a wonderful photos, her work is really fantastic and have so much thing that say to the world. The conceps are good and the treatment ..... :P"
22nd July, 2007
"Diana Pinto has a huge future and career ahead of her. Her work is incredibly mesmerising and deep for someone of her age. I've spent most of my morning browsing through her photostream, reading her interpretations and scribblings and I'm absolutely enchanted. I will watch her future work with eagerness, I'm hooked!
18th July, 2007
Elizabeth Salib says:
"Looking through her gallery is like looking through a scrapbook of all the most creative pieces seen on Flickr. She's exceedingly original, and her work is done nearly flawlessly. She is so good at communicating her emotions that often I feel as though I can sense exactly what she was thinking when she was creating one of her beautiful masterpieces. Sometimes I wonder how there's anything left of her after she's released all her emotions into her work. She's quite a beautiful character, not only in her physical self, but in her personality as well.
Edit: It seems that Flickr as a whole has lost it's obsession with your stream. Those who are of the few who have remained to support your photography have been rewarded greatly. I've gotten to know a lot of people on Flickr, some who have become my good friends. But I must say, out of all the people I've met here, you are certainly the one who I would call my "best Flickr friend." Love ya, hun."

Lara Swift says:
"Diana is an artist with heart and soul. I rarely saw somebody that is creating such conceptual artwork with a deep meaning."
23rd June, 2007
Kristen Lanae. says:
"Dark, twisted, beautiful, unique.. just a few words to describe Diana's photos. Each photo leaves me speechless, and wanting more. Much of her art work pulls out inner feelings and hidden secrets inside of me that I have no courage to show, and perhaps makes me feel as though im not alone. Im very impressed and inspired by Diana, and I know her talents can and WILL take her far.
13th June, 2007
"Diana is an artist indeed, to use a cliche, she doesn't take pictures: she creates them. I always look forward to her new pictures, her concepts, her messages within her very expressive pieces or art. Do take the time to look at her full photo stream, and enjoy this young and very talented photographer's creations."
5th June, 2007
Elliot J. says:
"An artist, not a photographer. She uses her camera as a canvas and herslef/others as the paint. Diana Pinto manages to produce material that causes or influences an emotion; she knows what she wants her viewers to feel. Like a good suspense movie, a director knows what angle to best film the scene in order to produce suspense, like a good comedy movie a script writer knows what lines to use and make the audience laugh. Well, Diana knows what photograph to make so everyone else feels that moment. A photograph catches a scene, a significant moment, and a feeling. Although we all interpret it differently, in the end we know exactly what she was feeling, so we know just what she wants to convey."
14th May, 2007
Nat A.R.C. says:
"OK here we go ...
I have not really known Diana for a long time nor personally, but through gazing at her artwork (or photography, whatever) I can see that she is gifted and will go far .... very far ....
With her fine style, which I so horribly adore, I hope some day to leech off her large wealth from all the money she is going to make ...
No lies here my dearies.
•Hope to some day meet you in person so i can properly admire you lol•

"Ive only known Diana and her work for a short time now, and observing her gallery leaves me wanting for more. her work is something different that stands out from the usual.
Keep doing what you do best!"
8th April, 2007
D Kwon photography says:
"Diana's work may be "macabre" (or whatever else you want to call it), but it's her own personal style through which she expresses her feelings and inner turbulations. Personally, I enjoy looking through her work. It strays away from the monotonous. :]
Keep up the great work, Diana. I, as well as many others, love to see more from you."
7th April, 2007
"It amazes me that Diana is only 15. She's very creative and I love her unique style. Her photo stream is very impressive and is one of my new favorites."
23rd March, 2007
"Okay, right off the bat, Diana is one of my favourite artists here on Flickr. Her work is just stunning beyond words. It's mysterious, captivating, and wonderfully moving. Every piece is a true work of art, and I see an amazing future in photography ahead of you. You continue to be an inspiration to me, hun! =) Keep it up!"
6th March, 2007

Gee, I hope that doesn't sound creepy."

"Hmm...where to begin? Diana definatly has something different and unique about her and that's what I admire most. In each of her photos you know you'll always find originality and beauty. I always look forward to seeing what is in store for us next!
If you keep rocking my socks off I wont have any left! =P"
21st January, 2007
"This girls work is amazing. It amazes me everytime. Your beautiful, and so is your photography. A lot of photographers can't pull off having blood everywhere on their faces and clothes, but you, you can pull it off like that.
awesome photographer, keep it up!"
15th January, 2007
"Absence Is Steel creates some very conceptual art which I can't get enough from. Keep up the good work :)"
7th January, 2007
Alexander Denomay says:
"Did you ever have the feeling that you really can't measure to something. That you can't even think that what you see as been thought of?! Well, this is what I feel when I see her work. Every time I get on a mood where I realize that all I see is ugly & totally unoriginal, I just write rapidity & impulsively her URL address & here we go, I feel much better. She's just unbelievably talented.... There's nothing more to say....
Ok maybe one more thing.... Can I please have an autograph, before you get famous!?:D
& I’m so jumping on the first plane to see your future exhibitions!
Please, I beg you to never stop…You were meant for this."
4th January, 2007
"Looking through your work I would never have believed someone of your age created them - I can definately see you becoming a great artist in years to come.
You experiment, play, try and it seems effortlessly come up with your ideas. Combined, these are the factors that will one day make you the great artist.
Please keep it up!"
