My name is Dénis and I’m a Dutch photographer and collagist
Photography to me, is a challenging and at the same time relaxing and creative exploration of the world around me. People play a central role in many of my photos. They never cease to amaze, amuse or fascinate me.
I like to photograph people as they are and capture life as it unfolds in an honest and respectful way. You can often find me on the streets where I look for interesting scenes, have a little talk or enjoy a cup of coffee while I watch people go about their daily lives.
Collage allows me to escape the apparent realism of photography. It appeals to another part of my personality and helps me broaden my perspective. I create my collages using the traditional method in which everything is cut and pasted by hand.
It's a fun and interesting process of searching, finding, destroying and creating. I intuitively combine photos, postcards and images from books and magazines to create new realities. Unique scenes that capture the imagination and invite people to take a closer look.
