About this title


Diana Williams, an American photographer, struggles to find her professional, social, and sexual identity in a time when so much changed for American women. From a rural Malay village in the 1960s, to the gritty East Village of Manhattan in the 80s, to Muslim Northern Ghana in the 90s Diana’s story unfolds against the backdrop of Vietnam, post-colonialism, lives of Muslim women, and the New York art world. Diana’s passion for photography destroys her marriage, and although she enjoys affairs with men and women, she suffers separation from her young son who as an adult blames her for their estrangement. As we follow Diana’s life adventures we witness the inner development of an artist socialized to one world, yet striving to realize her talents in a rapidly transforming one in which conflicting social forces both punish and liberate her. A thirty-year saga of personal and social history, "Depth-of-Field" embodies an international view of the world and covers a broad sweep of time – qualities also found in Barbara Kingsolver’s "Poisonwood Bible," Olivia Manning’s "Fortunes of War," and A.S. Byatt’s "The Children’s Story."
