Fine Art Photographer Denise M. Riggs is a native of Massachusetts and has lived in its Pioneer Valley since 2002.
Denise approaches photography directly without manipulation or cropping. She instinctively shoots in a semi-abstracted manner, taking her subject out of its ordinary context, creating a puzzle of sorts for the viewer to decipher. Reflections are a favorite subject matter as well as urban imagery.
Denise’s current project is creating a photo book, “A Portrait of the Key West Cemetery”. Inspired by the chaotic aesthetic of this curious setting, she began photographing the Cemetery in 2012 and exhibited work from her Key West Cemetery portfolio in 2016 in a solo exhibition at the Cider House Media Gallery in Easthampton, Ma.
Denise holds a BFA in Photography from the Savannah College of Art and Design.
