Elsa J N Thorp

artist statement

My photographs have a distinctive style with poetic qualities that express emotions and natural beauty. With my cameras I wander unconsciously, in solitary, drawn to exploring new places. My photography is image collecting, about the then and there, seizing the moment, capturing time. I am drawn to the past, the hidden, the unnoticed places that evoke emotion. 

My photographs are about ‘place’ in a sociological sense; about socially constructed sites or locations linked by experience and memory. 

I am interested in the relationship between self and other; in the susceptible uniqueness of our environment and experiences.
