All budding photographers seem to start off with inspiration. For Elizabeth, her inspiration was none other than her father. Thanks to her source of inspiration, she was introduced to a variety of cameras as well as lenses at a young age. Like all curious kids, she started fiddling around with the equipment she got her hands on. Photography thus slowly became an interest that grew along with her.
With a camera in hand, it is of course, possible to take pictures anywhere. For Elizabeth however, ideal places would be in a warehouse or a dilapidated building, where she is able to capture the emotion as well as the beauty of the past.
Elizabeth revealed that photography was important to her because it plays a part in defining who she really is as a person. Through the lenses of her camera, she is able to see things in a different light. What is not visible to her naked eye and judgment, speaks more clearly to her when it is put on film – it acts as “a second eye” as she would like to call it.
Her passion in photography has driven her to conduct photo-shoots of her own, driven by her very own theme and concept, “La Terre”.
“It became a fascination to capture the essence of a still shot and juxtapose it to the crazy time lapse we live in. ”
“La Terre" is based on the rawness of nature juxtaposed to the urban elements of our modern society. Looking at it in retrospect, it is a representation of how urbanism mutilates the unadulterated basis of this space we all exist in. We wanted to create visuals that amplify these messages to the viewers and hence this photo project took off. The photoshoot process was compromised of 3 elements: 1 projector, 3 people at work and a couple of shots I found myself attached to," explains Elizabeth, when asked about the concept behind the project.
