You know how I’m often drawn to artists that leave their subjects’ faces out of their art? Well, here I go again. These are the mysterious, painterly, nearly-always faceless photos by Elle Hanley. The self-taught Seattle fine art photographer creates images that feel like paintings by the old masters, but with a modern surrealist twist.
I love how these photos seem to drop you into the middle of a story, and I’d love to read the story they’re telling. I hope you’re as intrigued and drawn in by this work as I am.
