Elle Hanley is an american fine art photographer currently living and working in seattle. Her work is alluring and unexpected focusing mainly on capturing beauty and emotion in a still shot of time.
She began photography four 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 initially emerged as a self portrait artist. Elle enjoys the challenges in creating something classic and timeless from a thoroughly modern process and the contradiction between the two is a strong theme throughout her work.
Currently she is mixing the realms of art and fashion, working to expand her current open series, and still shooting an occasional self portrait. Always working on several projects and bringing new and intriguing characters to life to photograph.
