Ellen Rogers & thoughts of Wendy Bevan










I found these breathtaking photos on Alice's blog, Alice In Wonderland, after following a link in the "recent online press" section of Wendy Bevan's photography website. I thought for sure they belonged to Wendy Bevan at first, mostly because of the rich color and artistic distortion, but after looking around a bit I found they were actually done by a photographer named Ellen Rogers. What I love most about her work is that it's done with nothing but analog equipment with no digital shots and no photoshop touch ups; every effect is the result of darkroom experimentation (what one of my old man, former photographer friends, Gus, calls "real" photography). I think it's safe to say that Ms. Rogers has secured her spot as one of my favorite photographers right their next to the amazing Wendy Bevan. Both these ladies sure know how to inspire!

These are wonderful, they have a very 19th century meets 60's mod feel about them.
