The married photography duo inspired by the 70s and Japanese anime
Wes Anderson gone wild.
[I]ntroducing the odd couple to know creating weird and wonderful dreamscapes: Denelle & Tom Ellis. The London-based duo – who run a daylight photography studio out of their East London warehouse flat Peanut Factory Studio – first met two years ago on an overground train home from work and got married six months later.
Their collective tastes are a brilliantly bizarre mash up of 60s and 70s suburbia, Japanese anime series (current obsession: Dragon Ball Z) and pop kitsch surrealism. “We’ve come from vastly different backgrounds prior to coming together and think that is our great strength,” Tom tells Hunger. “We find that we do a great job at filling in the each others gaps to create something whole.”
“We work predominately in film,” Toronto-born Denelle adds. “We find it helps us slow down the and we make the most of each shot. Having a limited number of shots inherently creates an aura, which, we hope, permeates the image and makes it special.”
Stay tuned for an exclusive photo-story from the dynamic pair on Hunger TV later this week.
