Denver considers himself to be a work in progress; a student of life taking notes with a camera in hand. As a lens-man, Denver's language is sophisticated, impeccable and moving. His interpretation of seemingly mundane sights can be a powerful emotion frozen in time. Something the average person might miss in the blink of an eye, and somewhere between that blink is his art; the kind of art aht straddles cultures, people, nature and moments of everyday existence often overlooked in a rush called life.
From a self taught passion, his quest for developing his inmate photography skills took him from his country India to Canada where he is currently honing his skills at a photography school in Toronto. His work evokes powerful and distinct emotions, unique to every viewer and lends credibility to the famous quote from the venerable Ansel Adams, "you don't take a photograph, you make it."
