A collection of extraordinary photographs and mixed media works by photographer/filmmaker David Ellis.
"Des Choses Quotidiennes" is a collection of photographs that capture the inner fixed lives or essence
in everyday things, depicting the extraordinary in the seemingly ordinary. Other works are selected photos capturing instants from the continuum of life, sometimes the world streaming past a train window, perhaps night life or mysterious architecture...perhaps a cafe or street life moment, or just simple moments of natural beauty.
The mixed media works often include a vintage photograph rescued from an antique shop junk box or are sketches in walnut ink made from pens hand carved from dry tree branches found during hikes.
All the works attempt to convey "the pathos in things" or present an image that produces a question rather than an answer, and prompts a personal narrative for each viewer, as they do for me, as I discover, capture or create them.
