TARA DENNY – ARTIST STATEMENT
Even though the tool I use to create is a camera, I do not consider myself a photographer as much as an artist. I use my art as a way to express the things I cannot otherwise communicate to the world, and hopefully it serves as a window into my mind and heart.
I gain inspiration from nature, from my past, from my dreams and the world around me. My favorite ideas come to me when I’m walking in the woods and close to nature.
I began my journey with a camera in high school, when I failed a photography class, but fell in love with taking pictures. I was reborn as an artist in 2011 when I discovered the world of conceptual photography.
