Elle Perez (class of 2011) is featured in a new film as part of the “New York Close Up” series…
“Really great photographs,” Robert Adams once told us, “suggest more than just what they show literally.” Over these last few weeks, we shared the stories of two photographers who each take a unique and exceptional approach to capturing compelling imagery that contain narratives larger than what the images depict.
Elle Pérez, in a film from our New York Close Up series premiering this week, demonstrates their approach to staging pictures that also capture a raw and emotionally authentic quality. “I don’t think there’s a way to involve a camera without immediately involving a kind of fiction,” says Pérez, recalling their experiences of photographing entertainment wrestlers.
Kudos to Elle!
