Pamela Viola


Pamela (Hochschartner) Viola's love of photography began at a young age with a plastic Diana camera. Though she segued from still photography and into the world of motion pictures for a portion of her career, she was ultimately pulled back to her true artistic passion. Today she enjoys a successful career as award-winning artist, well known for her innovative images and unique technique.

Viola spent her free moments throughout college photographing the landscape and architecture around her. While completing a pivotal internship at the prestigious Light Gallery in Manhattan, Viola was exposed to the work of great photography masters such as Strand, Adams, Cunningham, Steichen, and Winogrand, and her love of photography was cemented.

In 1988 Viola earned a certificate in film making from New York University. She then stepped away from her own photography and spent 15 years in the film industry, working as a freelance Production Coordinator and Production Manager on feature films such as Black Hawk Down, Hannibal, Natural Born Killers, Nell and Six Degrees of Separation.

When she returned to still photography in 2001, she finally began to pursue the career she always dreamed of. Viola's interpretive style has emerged as an outgrowth of her cinematic background, as well as her extensive experimentation with various forms of photographic transfer printing. She now works completely digitally, and the image capture is just the starting point for her final artistic vision. Viola specializes in work for residential, hospitality, health care, and corporate settings. Her work is regularly featured in galleries throughout metropolitan Washington, DC and New York, and is held in public, private, and corporate collections worldwide.
