Ellen Rogers.

Ellen Rogers is a photographer based in London. I have admired her work for a while but recently saw a couple of photographs that seemed really relevant to my practice.

Ellen Rogers uses entirely analogue photographic techniques.

I like these photographs because I like the drama of them, the theatrical aspect of death.
The body is lain out, surrounded by flowers, the flowers are a symbol. They say "she is not simply sleeping".
