EXPOSED denis piel


EXPOSED 1979-2019
This book gives you a rundown of how I ve been occupied during these years. Life is an ongoing adventure, always new challenges. That is what keeps me going.
My exhibitions during this period include my Fashion work (Vogue and others) in USA, France, Italy, Australia, Russia and Uk, Facescapes in France, Australia, UK, Belgium and Portugal, Premier Oeil in London, Platescapes in Portugal and UK, Down to Earth in London. My book Moments was published by Rizzoli in 2012 and Down to Earth published in 2014. The Facescapes exhibition catalogue was published in 2012 by Museu Nacional do Traje in Lisbon.
I won many awards for film and photography from Cannes to Sydney. In 1987 I received the Leica Medal of Excellence for Commercial Photography.
Always attempting to achieve a measure of reality. Relationships are fundamental to my exploration, not only between my subjects but also to the viewer. Sometimes it is purely visual but always intending to motivate an emotional response. The relationship between the state of mind and the action of the body played an essential role in my fashion, beauty and portrait work. Soliciting my subject to have thoughts that stimulate a physical dimension became fundamental in my approach.
Stieglitz was instrumental over his fifty-year career in making photography an accepted art form, he maintained the goal of art was the vital expression of self.
It is what I have attempted to achieve with all of my work. What I have learned is that you are what you are and if you allow yourself to be yourself, the results will show.
