As a photographer and graphic arts specialist for one of the major cultural resources firms in the southeast, David Diener has traveled all over the country to capture some of the most distinctive historic buildings and interiors for permanent archival records. This work requires the rare skill of mastering the large format camera (4 inch by 5 inch negatives) for HABS (Historical American Building Survey) or HAER (Historical American Engineering Record) standards. These photographs and any drawings David produces are packaged for submittal to the National Park Service, and ultimately, to be permanently archived at the Library of Congress. David is proud of this work, which has left a record of so many important landmarks for generations to come.
