Overview

Denver's work centers around photography. He resists assigning a documentary value to it and is reluctant to use it artistically. 

In his creative process, Luciano Denver has examined how the different conceptions of modernity have come about in Latin American cities. This study has led him to review how architecture and urbanism interact in certain concrete realms. He analyzes the specific motivations that integrate public and private interests while making decisions that define how life occurs in those cities since the modern era.

Denver's work centers around photography, a medium he approaches unconventionally. He resists assigning a documentary value to it and is reluctant to use it artistically. Instead, he proposes photography as an artistic practice that implies the appropriation of different conceptions of the artist's logic to present to the viewer with a particular situation. Looking at his works, we may first think we are faced with a documentary proposition, only to feel later that the scene is entirely a fictional assembly. If we continue to inquire, we will find a bit of both in his work, only that he articulates the two of them purely for critical motivations.
