DENISE ALISON

At 6 years old I was taking photos with my mind's eye. As a child without an actual camera, I would take photos constantly in my mind. I would crop and click and amazingly many of those images are embedded in my memory and never a camera was held. At 17 I built my first darkroom and spent way too many hours lost in this love. My 3 daughters were raised in front of a camera and woke to see images of themselves drying all over the house in black and white. My camera has always been as necessary to me as a limb on my body. I feel lost if I don't have it on me. Humans of Lismore has given me a vehicle to share this love of photographing people with a new found love of story telling. This exhibition is showing another love...Life!
