LA ROSE DES VENTS
Photographer Elene Usdin
Elene started out as an illustrator for books and magazines in France, and for broadsheets such as The Boston Globe, the Washington Post, and the New York Times, in the US. Her interest in photography started in 2002, after buying a new camera. Thinking that it was the best way to experiment and create with full control, she commenced by taking self-portraits.
Elene Usdin’s work is a representation of her dreams and nightmares. She thinks of an idea as a waking dream, and she proceeds to tell these stories through the use of fashion. It is always about women: the women of fairytales, of mythology, and of fantasy. She continues to take photographs of young models, with tha aim of capturing their beauty and their magic.
