Denis Hunter Photographs


My photographic approach intends to be both a discipline of the eye and an aesthetic quest. Preferring nature and the landscape, I try to structure my perception of reality rather than finding an immanent order in the visible.

For me the composition of an image obeys a principle of exclusion. I try to link some formal elements that are nevertheless part of an indivisible whole.

Photographing also allows me to use time as a marker. Thus, water flowing draws its own patterns, recorded by the camera, and adds a random element to the photographic act.

By freezing duration and decontextualizing natural elements, my photographs become tropes of my relationship to the world.
