In Awe: Elise Hanna Photography

Captivated by the simple yet striking compositions in Elise Hanna's photography!

Elise is a globe-trotter but now lives and works from Chennai, India.

I like what she has to say "Too many designers and photographers are hung up in creating and photographing perfect spaces, perfect people. Less is so much more. I’ve lived in three countries in four years and I’ve learned that no matter where you are in the world, a home is more than four walls and light can find beauty in unexpected places."

Her eye for patterns and striking color combinations in everyday scenes is delightful. 
She has photographed India's everyday in all its rustic beauty, (especially the food) so lovingly making the asymmetrical look symmetrical, loud colors subtle, and ordinary scenes look endearing without being overly processed. 

My FAVE is this Vada-kolam with Vadas, onions and curry leaves :-) Delightful!

  3. I love the way she views the mundane and makes it so interesting. It's stuff we might see but not even notice, and she makes me take a second look. I've been following her on IG for ages, but decided to quit IG for now so it's nice to see her work here.

    1. True Shalini, Elise is gifted, her photographs of Indian street scenes are subtle and devoid of the usual technicolor (brrright colors) scheme!
