Bea Denton is an artist for whom photography is an intrinsic part of the creative process. Pushing the boundaries of the technical and physical limitations of photography, her work transcends photography’s realist conventions to achieve a deeper resonance.

Denton is a collector and archivist of anonymous lives, departed and reincarnated, in pursuit of an essence in the image: the 'soul'. In her examination of faith and death, she finds meaning and dimension through the imprint of time, light and phenomena.
