Denise Prince Photography

Denise Prince is an Austin-based, American artist working in a variety of media including film, photography, and performance. Influenced by conceptual and critical theory at CalArts in Los Angeles, Prince has worked closely with clinical philosopher and Lacanian psychoanalyst Charles Merward since 2007.

 

Prince is best known for her work redefining beauty, “beyond the veil of ego.” Using the visual syntax of fashion and style photography, she obstructs desire by refusing to honor its imaginary heirarchies. Her work has been clarified, confronted, and interpreted by psychoanalyst members of the World Association of Psychoanalysis and has been featured on PBS Television.
