Compared to influences like famous photographer Helmut Newton, Dalila often shows strength, individual style, and fashion in her photography. She has exhibited for the SOMARTS Gallery, The Oakland Fence Project, and others. Themes constant in her work are distance and relationships, the sky and nature. Un examined and unknown perspectives are her focus.
“I have always been an artist. I love to show people what I see through the lens. Now through my photography, I have the privilege to capture moments, record history, entertain, inspire and intrigue.”- Dalila Dynes
“We hired The Current Photos to shoot our Founder in multiple
settings with a couple of wardrobe changes. The shoot was conducted in Oakland, outside, in the elements. We were ecstatic to have DeeDee,
Founder and Principal Photographer, on the shoot that day.
DeeDee’s experience was immediately obvious, helping to direct lighting, positioning, and the best use of the natural landscape to
execute on our goals. The Current Photos turned around the images from the event the same day! This made our ability to move forward without set timelines efficiently and effectively. We can not recommend The
Current Photos, and DeeDee, highly enough. The collection of images
produced by this shoot supports the vision we held and we are grateful for the supportive, engaging and comprehensive work accomplished in a
single day.” – Jess H.
“Thanks again for these photos — as you can tell they’re how I represent myself online. The session with you made me feel more comfortable in my own authentic version of myself! And, without that, there’s no way I’d be where I am now professionally.” – Alana A.
