Elena's Portfolio and Bio
Elena was born in Ioannina, Greece in 1995. She started photographing with her
mobile phone two years ago and then switched to a pocket camera.
"It inspires me to take my camera and walk alone to photograph anything I like.
This is what inspires me because I feel free and I have so many ideas for photos after my walk.
Photography means freedom for me. I can be free with my camera on my hands, I can imprint how I feel
with my photos or how I want to feel. I'm in love with photography because it fills me emotionally. "
Elena would like to travel around the world to photograph the culture of the people,
the way they live, their daily routines, their food, how they dress....
Elena will be graduation from her Photography Art Studies in Ioannina this June (2016)

Looking through Elena’s photos I noticed that there are two very differently depicted genres.
That set in reality and daily life and the other set in her own made-up world. As she describes in her bio,
she loves to photograph her surroundings which she captures so well by framing-in small details of her own heritage
and then she escapes that and enters a mutual world for dreamers. She does it so gracefully and maturely
that I was surprised to find out how young Elena was and that she was still in school. It actually made me like her work
even more as it is always energizing to discover such young talent. I am very excited to see how she will progress from here.
