Denton often photographs young children in nature and domestic settings. She addresses 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 natural setting, her hands clasped in front of her. She wears an undergarment and a string of white daisies around her neck, a cluster of white flowers in the foreground.

Physical Description
