Denise Prince Photography

Denise Prince is an Austin-based, American artist working in a variety of media including film, photography, and performance. Influenced by critical theory at CalArts in Los Angeles, she has worked closely with clinical philosopher and psychoanalyst Charles Merward since 2007.
Prince is known for using the visual syntax of fashion and style photography to explore experience in relation to Desire (the memory of the missing thing). Her work has been clarified, confronted, and interpreted by psychoanalyst members of the World Association of Psychoanalysis, has been exhibited internationally and has been featured on PBS Television and in Vogue Magazine.
