Estelle is a regular contributor to FLIP Magazine (London Independent Photography) and have been published a few times in Street Signs, a magazine run by the Centre of Urban and Community Research, a well established interdisciplinary research centre within Goldsmiths’ Department of Sociology.
Her work focuses on the varied elements and environments that combine to create cities; from established images of landmarks to the smallest detail and found imagery. Also present in her work is the influence drawn from her deep interest in film and the moving image. She tends to work mainly with analogue photography and like to experiment with toy cameras; darkroom based alternative processes such as liquid light and cyanotypes as well as embroidery on found photographs and photo etching.
She exhibits regularly by herself or in group shows, local art fairs, etc….
Estelle is currently working as gallery co-ordinator for Apothecary Gallery in Hammersmith. The gallery main areas of interest are to promote the work of local artists, work with young people and to use art to raise awareness of the environment and conservation.
