ABOUT

ELISA MILLER IS AN AWARD-WINNING FRENCH PHOTOGRAPHER BASED IN LONDON, UK.

She tells visual stories using a vintage and colourful aesthetic to explore questions of identity, self-perception, and the representation of women. Her work delves into the impact of societal pressure on women and the images that lie beneath the surface, using light and elaborate settings to explore the female psyche through a cinematic lens.

Originally from Paris, Elisa’s creative journey began with a paintbrush in hand during her teenage years. It was during her work at a video tape rental shop that her passion for cinema took root, shaping her artistic vision and infusing her style with a cinematic allure. Before finding her calling as a photographer, Elisa ventured into the world of modelling, making waves in retro fashion and classic car magazines. However, it wasn’t until 2018 that she took the plunge into photography, embarking on a journey of exploration and self-discovery.
