Subject matter
Denton often photographs young children in nature and domestic settings. This image is from the series Leafsmoke, which investigates themes of everyday life, identity, and childhood. Denton uses an 8x10 Phillips camera with vintage lenses, creating atmospheric, dream-like imagery. In this image, a young girl stands in a back yard, surrounded by a tall wooden fence with wisteria growing over it. She stands beneath the plant, holding plant material in her outstretched hands.

Physical Description
In this photograph of a young girl she wears a light-colored dress and is standing underneath a wisteria plant. The plant grows over a wooden fence. The girl holds plant material in her hands.
