Photographer of the Week: Elle Stew

Stylish Italian photographer Elle Stew manages to combine the heights of sensuality with a striking impersonality.


She often frames shots to exclude the models’ faces…


… or else chooses poses where the faces are otherwise hidden:


So we get the impression of the camera eavesdropping on other lives that are unaware of its presence…


… giving especial power to the pictures that do feature eye contact,


as if the model has suddenly spotted an intruder – us!


Elle mainly shoots in monochrome, which gives her work a quality of calm stylishness,



and many of the shots are accompanied with philosophical captions in her native Italian.

So when she shoots a spanking, she doesn’t capture the dynamism of the moment or its human drama, but rather its sensuality and a paradoxical stillness.

Here’s one she shot in 2014, inspired by Fifty Shades of Grey:

The caption translates as: ‘He can take me, screw me, spank me, even love me… but possess me – well, that’s another story.’

And in 2015 she shot this follow-up picture:
