Award-winning photographer Dennis Papa sees his environment through the camera lens. A practicing environmental engineer and professional geologist for over 20 years, Dennis is accustomed to working on issues where the built environment complements our natural world.  
"We interact with and re-form our surroundings on an almost evolutionary scale. When stepping back to consider progress, the individual details can appear altered by time and the context of our own memories. Photos preserve these transient images, adding not only to our memories but also to our appreciation and insight into a world that could otherwise go un-catalogued, even unnoticed."

After growing up in RI and attending college in PA and VA, Dennis lives in the Richmond area with his wife, children, and varying number of rescued and foster pets.
Images of our natural and built environments also provide Dennis with great inspiration for the vibrant colors in his acrylic paintings, and the form and function of his wood carvings and furniture.
