Dennis Covey is an American renowned photographer who’s been in the field for decades. For several years a lot of his work has centered around human form, and as his photography has taken him to various places around US, he’s seen a need to capture the human body as an Art Form.
“I have worked with the human form in my commercial photography and fine art studies for more than 40 years. Sculpting the human physique with light is what I do for two dimensional media. Just as photography captures light on a subject in an instant as imagery, lifecasting captures a physique at a moment in time in three dimensional media.”
Dennis Covey is the photographer we want to know all about, his aesthetic, his visionary eyes, his technique, the way he’s placing the spots and lighting, everything is a really well executed work done for over 40 years.
Dennis’ passion is art, the body expression, the human form, the contact with senses and capturing all sentiments is not an easy job. “The sculpture has become a natural extension of my two dimensional physique studies. The hands on creative process of sculpting fulfills something more basic. It’s a very childlike process. It’s playing with goop and mixing mud and getting all dirty.”
Dennis said about dimensional work and his “I tune in to the sculpture in ways that I can’t with my two dimensional work. When sanding and finishing a piece it vibrates and resonates and sings creating a physical bond.”
“When I’m applying the finishes I dance with the piece and we mutually agree as to the colors it will become.”
“My creative life is blessed with a wonderful balance of artistic expression utilizing state of the art technology for the realization of my personal vision in imagery and casting techniques dating back to the ancient egyptians resulting in sculpture.”
