OUTDOORS: Bearing witness to natural wonders engulfing us
The splenders of the Grand Canyon; the majesty of a mature oak with hanging moss; the flowing of water creating the expanse of the Mississippi River develop through time. Denise Burridge's artistry is the development of life experiences, from early sketches of Mickey Mouse bourne out of poverty to capturing the fleeting moments of childhood. Each photograph taken envelopes the spirit of the subject she charms with prisms of light through the lens, be it a dry landscape of billowing tumbleweeds to the emerald colors of the Gulf of Mexico, or the wonderment in a child's eye at seeing a first rainbow.Transpiciuous is her work. Adventures that become the folklore of tomorrow; the encircling relationshipsthat bind humanity; the bearing witness to the natural wonders that overwhelm the senses: Each immortalized in her photography.
With today's phones and tablets, anyone can snap a picture, but there is a difference between a picture and a photograph. A picture is a snap shot of time. A photograph is the remembrance of a moment in time that becomes a cherished memory. A photograph stirs the heart to connect with the subject, be it a grain of sand, a sunrise on a mountain top, or a child returning a turtle to its natural home. Denise Burridge captures the emotion, the feeling, the moment that evolves into stories filled with laughter, memories, warmth, connection... Her photography is art. As with all great art, it is borne from a sense of being made for more, the intrinsic value of humanity and all creatures, created out of hard life lessons caste upon her without her consent. Yet, as with all truly gifted individuals, Denise has risen above the ashes of a childhood rife with anguish and a young adult life void of genuine love. But as with all strong trees, her roots are deep and her trunk is strong. Picking up a camera as a mature adult with tough experiences behind and promise ahead, she began the journey of fulfilling a calling: photography with passion. Very few have the innate ability to take something of seemingless little value and creating a moment that inspires wonder in the mind of the viewer: Denise is in this group of very few. The question for you then is this: is it a picture or a photograph you desire. If it is the former, the means is at the tip of your fingers. If it is the latter, Denise will create memories that bond moments to generations.
