Elena Heatherwick is a London-based freelance photographer specialising in portrait and documentary photography. Her work is characterised by an acute understanding of light and shadow and a sharp eye for texture and meaningful detail. “Conversations are at the heart of how I approach photography,” Heatherwick explains. “After that, I rely a lot on what the light is doing that day ...”

Heatherwick’s award-winning work has featured in numerous magazines and newspapers including the New York Times and The Guardian. International assignments include projects for the United Nations and the International Rescue Committee. She recently travelled to Rwanda and Madagascar to document the lives of those affected by the lack of access to basic sanitation. “Each encounter is an opportunity to learn, to exchange ideas” says Heatherwick. “It’s a total privilege.”
