Olivia Elia

Hands-on Artist

Recent UCLA graduate with a hands-on philosophy that is applied to photography, woodworking, teaching, and life.

"I have gone through many phases of photography: from surrealism, to portraits, to landscapes, to my current obsession, documentary photography. I carry my Pentax film camera with me everywhere so that I’m ready when a moment worth capturing occurs. It could be anything from the casting of a rod over a river to my friends playing cards. Photography is about capturing the feeling around you. I want the viewers to feel like they know my subjects without ever meeting them. I love the process of film. I think it adds to the authenticity of the moment."                                              - Olivia
