I am Ellie Gibbons, a photographer and photofilm maker based in Birmingham, England. In my work, I am interested in stories about the people and places that inspire my thinking and I like, where possible, to see the colour, quirks, humour, and beauty in life. I specialise in capturing people both creatively, and in their 'everyday' environments; I love the way the most subtle gesture -  a movement of the hand, a facial expression, a touch - can be so powerful when captured on camera.My photofilms are an extension of my documentary work, combining still images, audio and storytelling - my aim always being to get to the heart of any subject matter I am exploring.
