Elle Green lives through telling stories with her photographs. She documents her daily adventures when she travels with skaters & surfers around the world. We like seeing them do impossible tricks, but we love to know what’s happening when they have their feet on the ground. Elle captures those in-between moments best, whether its with her Fashion photographs or Travel photos. At 18 she left home in South Australia to teach Darkroom photo skills in Maine, USA where her love of travel Photography began. After returning from the USA in 2001, she moved to Melbourne, AUS to study a BA in Photography at RMIT, then moved once more to Sydney where her Photo career kicked off. Between Assisting Fashion Photographers & shooting Freelance, she began to travel the world including; South Africa, Japan (8 times), Mexico, Barbados, Hawaii, frequent trips to USA, Europe and most recently working at Milk Studios in NYC.
She began to love reportage and documentary style photographs that, in a whole, are very personal and poetic. Bursting with creative flavour after her South Africa trip in '07, Elle designed her first photo/travel diary book titled, "You Should Get Away More Often" & solo exhibited at Sydney's MTV Gallery in 2008. She proved to her peers she could create, but even more so, she proved it to herself.
Elle has exhibited her work at galleries in Japan, Hawaii, LA, Melbourne & Sydney.
She has self published 3 books & 1 zine. In 2014, Volcom published her best photographs for the brand titled, 'True To Me'.
Her latest photo book titled 'V-Land' shot in Oahu, Hawaii is currently on sale at Greenroom Gallery Tokyo, Kumakura, Waikiki & Haleiwa, HI.
