In Denise Prince’s photographic series Beyond This Thing Between Us elements of a narrative are assembled and the intimate space created for the photography to take place becomes the subjective content. It is not important that the scenes are constructed but that the construction results in creating intimacy.
For her photographic series Things I Never Told You, Prince constructs narratives that utilize the language of advertisement and fashion photography then carefully disrupts the subtext. Her dislocated and buoyant portraits, reflect lives informed by American culture and nuanced by individuality.
Prince’s short films and videos center around the artist’s willingness to speak from her subjectivity despite the fact that doing so exposes information that is culturally shameful. Prince uses dance and other devices in her work to provide a framework for the normative and non-normative behavior she embodies.
Her work has shown in art galleries and festivals in the United States, Mexico, Spain, Italy and Turkey. Jerry Saltz (New York magazine) said "Your video is excellent; very raw, mysterious, revealing, complex, and vulnerable, radically vulnerable.
You are telling your secrets while keeping them secret..."
