Denise Lira-Ratinoff is a multi-media contemporary artist based in New York. For her Glacier series, she traveled to remote places to capture the disintegration of the world’s most important glaciers and treks to forbidden areas to capture the different melting states of these ethereal glaciers. The fleeting nature of the glaciers is a metaphor for the relationship humans have with nature. Her photographs poetically portray the dramatic natural shapes that have been naturally sculpted by the ocean and wind and never alters her photographs. They serve as the sole witnesses of the immense changes happening to our ice glaciers and call attention to the importance of our environment.
Lira-Ratinoff has received numerous awards including the 2008 “Best Art Event of the Year”, Atlanta, Georgia, United States and 1999 Best Young Artist of the Year, Chile. Denise’s works are included in public and private collections in Europe, North America and South America. Her work is an encounter between photography, video, organic materials and direct contact with the space–a constant awakening of the senses.
