About the Book
Elsa Marie Keefe is an artist based in New York City. Her work is primarily focused around the human body and nature. Through both photography and mixed media, she transmits a message of transcendence and universal beauty. “All bodies and all things of nature are beautiful. Humans are animals are sentient beings. We are the earth.” Elsa takes nude photographs of herself and others in nature, in places void of manmade objects. She also collects trees, rocks, bones and other objects from the land and sea that she places on canvas with resin. The intention behind the art is to remind us that we are all one, interconnected, and a part of mother earth. Performance art is another medium that she is utilizes as of late, promoting public nudity, hoping that we may all become more comfortable with the human body. Holistic wellness, spirituality, and healing are the backbone for her lifestyle and central components to her process and vision.
