Agua, Denisse Ariana Pérez, Regular Edition
Agua is the first photobook from Caribbean-born, Barcelona-based photographer Denisse Ariana Pérez. Driven by an obsession with humans and the human experience as a whole, her work looks to explore, expose and honour the beauty she sees in others. Water, which has always been present in both life and work, allows her to get closer by dissolving facades and removing walls to celebrate what is found within. From the colder currents of Scandinavia to the warm pink lakes of Senegal, Agua is an intimate and endless journey of human exploration that captures a vital and magical relationship between people and water.
“I keep coming back to water scenes. I keep coming back to lakes, rivers and oceans. I like to explore the interaction of people with water. Water can disarm even the most armed of facades. Becoming one with water is not about rushing but rather about flowing. And flowing is the closest thing to being.”
