Ellen Kydd (they, she, elle)
Photographer, Rambler & Visual Artist.
MA Fine Art (distinction) - 2021

Elle's photographic portraits engage with a wide range of subjects across the Art World - painters, sculptors, dancers, writers, designers, musicians, illustrators, chefs...
Elle specialises in documenting creatives and making photographic portraits of artists in their spaces.
Elle's personal art practice considers the body in varying spaces. Through performative movement, large-scale abstract paintings and drawings, Elle uses line and colour to materialise their internal world - a synaesthesic psycho-geography.
Theories of proprioception & Japanese concepts of space
(ma 間, wa 和) underpin all of Elle's artwork, as well as daily interactions with various people and spaces.
