Originally from Russia, Elena Iv-skaya worked as a model before stepping behind the lens to explore her own creative vision. As a photographer she is inspired by the models she works with and feminine elegance. Elena produces gorgeously expressive and lucid imagery striking a balance between high-fashion and graphic art. In certain cases, she also acts as set-designer creating stunning landscapes for her beautiful subjects to exist in. Her universe cannot leave anyone indifferent: the incredibly rich and well-curated color palette, combined with her graphic, almost essential compositions, turn her photographs into wonderful painting-like creations.
