Elle Hanley is an american fine art photographer currently living and working in seattle. her work is creative and varied focusing mainly on capturing beauty and emotion in a still shot of time.
she began photography two years ago as an artistic outlet and it grew into a full fledged devotion. she was drawn in particular to self portraiture for the control it gave over the image outcome and has since grown into a self portrait artist. Elle enjoys the challenges in creating something vintage and timeless from a thoroughly modern process and the contradiction between the two is a strong theme throughout her work.
one of her latest and largest accomplishments is the completion of a 365 project she worked on throughout 2011. a photo a day, for an entire year. currently she is enjoying a much less stressful shooting schedule while finishing her second photo book and creating new and intriguing characters to photograph.
