Denisse Ariana Pérez

“I keep coming back to water scenes. I keep coming back to rivers and lakes. I keep coming back to the oceans. I like to explore the interaction of people with water. Water can disarm even the most armed of facades. Becoming one with water is not about rushing but rather about flowing. And flowing is the closest thing to being.”

This large ongoing body of work has taken Denissi through different corners of the world on an aquatic pilgrimage, from the cold waters of Scandinavia to the pink rivers of Senegal. In these versatile waters, she has captured men, women, siblings, people living with albinism, and non-binary beings. Through her images, she aims to showcase people through a more sensible and sensitive lens, one that shows nuance, vulnerability, and movement.

This series is the foundation of Denisse her first monograph titled AGUA.
