About Denise Strahm

Denise Strahm San Diego, California-based Fine Art Photographer, Denise Strahm, is best known for transforming her photographs into visually and emotionally captivating art pieces that invite the viewer to enter, connect with the place and stay for a while.

'IS IT A PAINTING OR A PHOTOGRAPH?'

This question is asked daily at her studio/gallery when visitors see her images. Drawing from her 30 years in graphic design, Denise is able to create simple graphic contemporary artworks that trick your mind's eye into seeing a painting instead of a photograph. She captures her subject with her camera and then brings the images into her digital darkroom to finish the creative process using her unique vision for the art piece as a guide and to simplify its structure as she deems best for the image at hand.

It has been suggested that Strahm might be called a Digital Secessionist, a likeness to the Photo Secessionists of the early 20th Century. Alfred Stieglitz and other secessionists went to some pains to make photographs look painterly and to give their images a feel of something more than a simple record of a scene.

Honing her craft since 2005, Denise's favorite subject to capture is old, colorful, textural and weathered (but charming) architecture, as near as the California Missions and as far as Europe and Morocco.
