  • About the work

Lightjet print on Fuji Crystal Paper. Edition 1/7 + 2AP's.

Ellie’s work explores the fabricated nature of landscape by making a variety of temporary and non-invasive interventions in the forest, which place the viewer in the gap between reality and fantasy. Creating this space encourages the viewer to re-evaluate the way in which their relationship with the landscape is formed, and the extent to which it is a product of cultural heritage or personal experience. 

In her new series ‘Fires’ (2018), Ellie continues her long preoccupation with the woodland, this time combining it with the elemental quality of fire with all its deeply opposing themes of life and death, creation and destruction, love and loss and the human versus the natural world.

Ellie’s career goes from strength to strength. In 2017 she won the Magnum Photography Award, Fine Art Category and The People's Choice Award at the Aesthetica Art Prize 2016 both for her 'Stars' series. She has also been awarded prizes at many prestigious Art Awards including 1st place in the 2015 Smithsonian Photo Contest.
