— THE SOCIETY OF THE SPECTACLE

ELLEN ROGERS.

I picked up my first copy of Vice in a long while last week, and having not perused one in a while, I had forgotten how great Vice was/is brilliant at spotting and nuturing photographers with totally individual aesthetics. While the content may not be everyone’s cup of tea, it’s photographers have been brave, daring and committed to their approach, whatever it is.

With that in mind, I stumbled upon a photographer who could well be following in the footsteps of a Terry or a Ryan. Ellen Rogers work is totally unique, wilfully anti-digital and comes over like a warped time capsule, like you’ve uncovered the dark side of Victoriana all to yourself.

It’s worth checking out the entire website of her work. There’s huge archive (as well as some handily ‘bloggable’ images) to peruse. I’m looking forward to seeing more of her work grace the pages of many more publications in the future. A real find. (Flickr page here)

After the jump; some of my personal faves…
