ELLIE CHIDGEY

I am a photographic artist with a BA (Hons) in Marine and Natural History Photography from Falmouth University. I have a passion for the ocean and natural world. My work is produced using experimental camera-less photographic mediums including Cyanotypes and Photograms. I also thoroughly enjoy shooting digital photography whether that be above or below the surface.

Painted by seascapes around Cornwall, each individual piece created captures the raw physical impression of the natural world. The waves, wind, sun, and sediment are all key components, physically inscribing the media with unique moments in time. Covered with salt, seaweed and sand traces, the artwork bears the movement of the sea, mirroring both the textures of the shoreline and powerful forces in our oceans. Each piece represents a unique record of that place and time.
