Denzil Spicer is a Washington DC architectural designer, photographer and writer of poetry, who emigrated with his family from Jamaica in 1952. He has published three books of his photographic explorations and poetry, which mirror each other as aesthetic entrances to suspended moments as a form of storytelling. Two of these, "Xamayca: Picture The Day Taken", and "Xamayca: Mixed Blessing" portray his study of ordinary life in his home country with imagery that has been savored and deepened with his distinctive style and point of view. An earlier work, U-Ropa: Reflections Enigmatique documents his work as a street photographer in his travels to Europe.
Currently he is focusing on a new poetry folio, "DC: Capital Solitudes & Trembles" and new work from Europe, "Slipping Borders" which reflects upon the heightening of ordinary experiences, globalization and the mixing of cultures.
