Her universe cannot leave anyone indifferent: the incredibly rich and well-curated color palette, combined with her graphic, almost essential compositions, turn her photographs into wonderful painting-like creations.

Beauty, elegance and fierce attitude defines Elena’s eye-catching work. She is known for her high impact colorful portraits.  Her style is permeated with the passion for highly aesthetic, strong and elegant imagery, with saturated colors and play of light.
