Portrait Equality is an exciting chance for Elle to combine her two loves of travel and photography to break down the barrier between the photographer and subject; she aims to give back to the people whom she enjoys interacting with so very much. This program is her chance to go a step further and use her skills in digital media and her general love of travel and people, to capture the life style of the people who live in the country that she is traveling in. She wants to capture the way people interact with each other and the land, the way they approach her, and the lifestyle they lead. She often photographs women and families because she like the interaction and understanding you can only get in a ‘home stay’ situation.
Elle’s favourite photo is of her best friend Indigo, whom she considers like one of her family. This photo was taken at Elle’s first exhibition.
