Photographer: Elle Moss
Posted by Maxine Harris
Elle Moss’ photography captures winter at its prettiest. The twinkling lights and snow-covered ground signify a blank canvas from which our fresh start in the New Year can begin. Her photography is captured with a slow shutter speed, which creates blurring and focus at the same time, adding to their surreal charm. Light is daubed as if painted. Colours are muted. The images appear as something out of a Beatrix Potter novel. The use of blur with sharpness affords these images a narrative which is altogether ambiguous. However, the emphasis, stretching and blurring of light suggests these stories have a somewhat mystic and magical undertone. Perhaps there is an element of the fantastic within her photography – an alternate world and talking animals. Elle’s photography tells a barrage of words, and Christmas is just one of them.
