About ELENA

Bio

I was born in a marvelous island (Tenerife, Canary Islands, 1973). Since I was a child all my world was colour, and shadow, and tales, under the palms, the quaternary forests and the volcano shape. I remember myself in silence, pencil and paper in my hands, devouring books and drawing scenarios.

After finishing my Fine Art studies I was traveling and photographing faraway for long periods of time: that increased my love for the “racconto”.Then I realized that photography was the way that will help me to understand, to create, to cacht those worlds in my mind, making them of “real images”.

Graduate in Fine Art, from the ULL (University of La Laguna, Canary Islands) 1996.
