If you adored our recent feature interview with Ellen Rogers, you will definitely be enamored with her upcoming monthly contribution for the Lomographic community. Let us accompany her and delve into her coemeterium as she shares with us the inner pulchritude of her works.
We recently witnessed her loveliness and creativity in Ellen Rogers: Instilled with Lustre and Wonder. It is not surprising how and why we were all mesmerized by her illustrious film photographs of Victorianesque maidens with beguiling bodily postures and facial expressions and of majestically tinted and fashionable portraits of porcelain-skinned muses. Her philosophy revolves around history, literature, psychology, and religion. Her occult approach to transform her photography into art transports us, viewers, into a Wonderland of affinity and strangeness.
Soon, Ellen Rogers will be writing her own monthly column in the magazine’s Analogue Lifestyle section. It will be called Sepulchral: A Journey in the Necropolis by Ellen Rogers. While waiting for the first installment of her series, here is a brief introduction from Ellen herself. Let us all give her a whimsical welcome as she joins the our very own analogue community!
I’m new here, well, newish, you can read an interview that I did here a little while ago, but that aside, I’m new here.
I am not however new to what I shall be talking about here. I am a photographic Luddite, you see; digital photography doesn’t sit well with me and I have long been championing the use of film in photography. Photography, as I see it, is a discipline, a way of life and one that cannot be compromised nor, in my life, can my usage of analogue equipment or supplies.
My attempts here will be to talk candidly about how my life revolves around my projects and how I deal with my artistic practice.
As it stands I am a professional freelance fashion photographer, I’m always busy doing look books or campaigns around the fashion weeks and I work on editorial stories monthly but in between I will embark on personal projects. This is where I will talk about them and occasionally I will do an article about why I use certain things in my work.
I should say now, that all my personal techniques are hard earned secrets and I will take them to the grave… Perhaps you will find them there someday…
But, that said please don’t be a stranger, if you have any questions (that are not about my technique) please ask away. I may do the odd post in response to your questions.
Thank you and I look forward to seeing you around soon.
