London based Photographer Elena Rendina started her career assisting fashion photographer Paolo Roversi. Born in Italy, Elena studied at the University of Art and Design in Lausanne, Switzerland. By combining her talents in photography, set and costume design, Elena is able to create unique and magical worlds inspired by an eclectic mix of found props, textiles and paintings. Within these worlds Elena shows us characters influenced by real life encounters with teenagers, their personal search for style, and the kitsch adornment of their private diaries and personal possessions. All this combines to create surreal and dream like imagery that still feels personal and intimate.
Elena is currently shooting for Vogue Gioiello, Pop Magazine, Numero Paris, Russian Interview, and British Harpers.
