Denise Diaz, photographer by choice, observer by nature, has been capturing moments for as long as she can remember. The 29 year-old, energetic, pseudo-paparazzo is easily spotted amongst friends, as she’s always the lively individual with camera in tow.Diaz has been scrutinizing images with her internal viewfinder since childhood. One doesn’t have to look far to notice this. Pictures adorn her house, film is profuse on her desk and camera equipment floods her car. Suffice it to say, photographs are paramount in her life.
Always aware of her surroundings, Diaz finds comfort in viewing life through a lens—one that provides her the means to emphasize the spirit of a moment. When asked to explain her love for the lens, Diaz quotes well-known abstract expressionist photographer, Aaron Siskind: “Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”
