Biography

Denise lives on the Upper West Side in New York City where she has an affinity of exploring the world around her on foot, especially urban life, and architecture. 

Her black and white images of New York City poetically capture her everyday observations. Shooting towards almost symmetrical scenes, Denise also adds a compelling dynamism to her photographs by overlaying multiple layers of light and shadow. 
 
Her style of shooting New York City captures corners and niches of architecture that may go unnoticed, revealing a freshness of a well-known landmark structure by focusing and cropping in on a less obvious detail. With her editing style, she pulls out the drama within that detail by developing a graphic and bold quality of a once familiar scene. At times humans appear in her work, capturing a moment, always incorporating them into the graphic quality of the scene.

Denise studied Advertising Art and Photography in the School of Visual Arts in New York City, and is currently working in advertising by day, and Fine Art photography by night. She is a single mom of two boys.
