Photographer Denisse Ariana Pérez talks her inaugural publication, Agua – an ode to water and its mystical qualities.

Agua is a photography project from Caribbean-born, Barcelona-based photographer Denisse Ariana Pérez. Driven by an obsession with humans and the human experience as a whole, her work looks to explore, expose and honour the beauty she sees in others.

On her travels, she found herself repeatedly drawn to waterscapes, and to photographing people within them. “I started questioning why that was and realised it’s the element I feel most connected to. That made me want to explore it more; to hopefully transmit the feeling it gave me to others.”

"I keep coming back to water scenes. I keep coming back to lakes, rivers and oceans. I like to explore the interaction of people with water. Water can disarm even the most armed of facades. Becoming one with water is not about rushing but rather about flowing. And flowing is the closest thing to being."
