Monica Denevan is a San Francisco-based artist whose photographs blur the distinction between cultural documentation and artistic portraiture. They begin with a personal connection made while travelling through Burma (Myanmar) and evolve from the people and their immediate environment.
Introspective and meditative, her camera reveals a deep love for a country and its people. The images often transcend the subjects themselves to acknowledge their participation in a world of extraordinary resonance and harmony.
She has been exhibited across the US and in Hong Kong and Cambodia. She was a winner of the 2008 International Photography exhibition award at the Center of Fine Art Photography in Colorado.
