Sarah Elliott: Capturing Life


(Sarah Elliott, Stylized Portrait by Tiner).

From growing up in Laguna Beach, CA to graduating from Parson's School of Design in New York to living in Kenya, Sarah Elliott is creatively capturing the world's vibrant dynamics. Armed with only her camera, Elliott is aesthetically documenting the political unrest in Kenya.

I've known Sarah for awhile both from Laguna and when we were pursuing our undergraduate studies on the East Coast. I enjoyed creating this portrait in commemoration of her recent photo publication in The New York Times (click here to view the picture). I included a subtle overlay of Laguna Beach in the background, to convey that no matter where Elliott is documenting life ...her hometown will always be with her.

I wish her the best in her endeavors. (Click here to view her portfolio website).

Cheers.
