Denise Prince has had critical success and both the fine art and academic art worlds with work across the disciplines of film, photography, painting and object making. Support for her work comes from master photographer Joel-Peter Witkin and Anne Wilkes Tucker who stated, "No one is making work like this."
The lush styling and sophistication in Prince’s constructed portraits are augmented by wit and make clear the pleasure with which she indicates narratives and then carefully disrupts them. The concept is essential to the nature of photography. "Caught in a state of permanent suspense vis a vis events that have just happened or are about to take place, photographs contain essential seeds of narratives that can never come to fruition except in the imagination."
