Urban Light Studios presents Elle Hanley, an American fine art photographer living and working in Seattle. She emerged four years ago as a self-portrait artist and quickly expanded her work into the realms of fashion and surrealism. On any given day, Elle can be found scouting locations on the outskirts of the city with her camera handy and her dog nearby.
Elle's scope of work addresses the natural tension between the human form and the space it occupies. Her sets are often fantastical and ask the viewer to take a participatory role in imagining the narrative behind each piece. Her work plays on the seemingly apparent contradiction between the modern process and the timless aesthetic, requiring the audience to momentarily suspend disbelief and engage in the storytelling process. www.ellehanley.com
