With her camera, Ellen has learned to see with her third eye, with her spirit, she is always seeking the light. Not necessarily the light of reflections or shadows that are seen by all of us, but the inner light of the object or person she is photographing. Ellen photographs with a mindful pause, allowing time to connect with the world around her. Ellen excels in photographically capturing a wide range of genre-musicians, landscape, city scapes, abstract, street portraits, dancers, as well as an ongoing passion in the study of gender identification, including photographing drag queens and body builders.
Ellen seeks to reveal an emotional connection with her work, allowing space for the viewer to have a personal response to the story told in her photographs.
