I simply use photography to help myself know and understand the world and myself, how and what I see. It's not any more complicated than that, but the pictures I make are often complexly structured. I make photographs in the street, on and from roads, anywhere not in a studio. I thrive on the joyous and mysterious serendipity of observed improvisational photography using color blocking and formal layering (street photography), and solving the multitude of photographic problems that these milieu present.
"Photographer, Dennis Church, looks at the world differently and his photographs reveal a layered seeing that reflect the kaleidoscopic assault on our senses in contemporary times. Disorienting at first, he is a visual deconstructionist, using color and altered perspectives that flatten space in order to examine the visual chaos that surrounds our every day lives."
