Elia was given her first camera for her ninth birthday. It was a red one. She took it on holiday to Valencia in the summer and shot portraits of her mum and her dad, her sisters and her dolls.
Years later, she carried a black compact through Latin America and the Far East. She discovered a knack for making people smile. She bought a new camera. Now she shoots people in the thick of their lives. Brides and babies, kids and couples.
Her images draw on the traditions of reportage and portraiture to tell personal stories with simplicity and elegance, depicting her subjects in their natural environment. They look for the thing about each day that will be worth remembering thirty years from now. She wants to find that red camera in case another little girl needs it.
