Ellen Stagg has been a photographer since she was 16 years old. She moved to New York City in 1996 from Connecticut to attend the School of Visual Arts to get her BFA in Photography. She signed with her first photography agent at the end of her junior year of college. In her decade plus career as a professional photographer she has worked in advertising, fashion, and portraiture. Stagg shoots for a multitude of magazines as well as creating look books, stock photography, and photographing celebrities.
This current body of work blends Ellen Stagg’s love of nature with her love of the female nude form. Shooting with a Holga 120 film camera, Stagg photographs her models, making multiple exposures on the film. This process is repeated with elements of nature, as Stagg shoots images flowers. The multiple exposure images are flipped, creating kaleidoscoping images that mirror each other like a Rorschach test.
