He is at once a mixture of restlessness and curiosity- he is a person of great sensitivity, a perfectionist who can never quite be satisfied. He has the drive and dedication of an artist and the technique of a master photographer.His success in nude photography - and, I honestly believe, he is the finest exponent of this difficult field in the world - depends on a combination of varied attributes and skill. Certainly, the nude is no subject for the dilettante- but de Dienes is a specialist of many years experience.Elsewhere he tells something of the trouble he takes in the selection of models and location, the choice and arrangement of props, the long wait - or rush, as the case may be - to catch the light just as he requires it for his purpose, the mental strain which accompanies the physical effort of a prolonged session.Unintentionally, too, he pays a considerable tribute to the Rolleiflex when he revels that all the pictures in this most notable selection were made by that versatile little camera.
