ELLEN ROGERS dark imagery to form beautiful photos
Having grown up around the beach towns of North Norfolk, Ellen Rogers soon migrated to London where she's been spending most of her days in the darkroom where she makes her own chemicals. Besides perfecting a portfolio of soft images which often involve dark and quiet scenes or emotive subtlety, she collects vintage cameras and comics. Recently, Rogers also curated a show for her and her artist boyfriend's favourite comic artist Arthur Ranson. Also a budding filmmaker, 26 year-old Rogers uses Super 8 and focuses on a wider angle approach to her subjects using varying textures and experiments to find the perfect results. She also studies various Druidic and Runic teachings and is fascinated by religion, the occult, scripture, unsolved mysteries, and ancient history which explains a lot about her photos.
