Self-portraits series taken during the National Lockdown in the UK, January 2021.
The lockdowns had different impacts on artists. As Elisa couldn’t meet with people to photograph, her way of keeping creative was working with self-portraits. She started playing with still life scenes too. The absence of humans in these images reflect the isolation we were all experimenting with. The only “contact” with the outside world at that time was through the telephone. It is also a way to reach out with someone outside the frame: the viewer.
