Elena Gallotta is an award winning Italian born fine-art photographer based in Ireland.
She comes from a ballet and theatre background which strongly influences her work.
Many of her images reflect her relationship with dance and non-verbal communication itself.
Her work can often be defined as an anthropological study of the human body and it's mysterious subtle language.
Elena's way of composing a picture and working with the light is hugely inspired by her passion for paintings, especially the Old Masters.
She has been published in numerous art magazines throughout Europe.
In 2009 she went back to her first love when she was commissioned to make ''Story Of One'' a short dance film by the Irish Arts Council.
She collaborated with two major dance performers from France and the film was a very productive visual-kinetic exchange between them all.
"Story of One" screened successfully at the Oxford Dance Festival in 2010 and has just been selected for the 2011 Irish Film Festival in Rome.
