Essie considers herself to be a film ‘junkie’. She is prolific with any type of film or camera. Her experimental methods have set her apart from the norm, as both a photographer and an artist
"Do What You Love & Love What You Do"
I use photography as a means to document the world around me. I make pictures that call attention to things that other people often overlook. My work can be recognized by a timeless and ethereal quality where the imperfections of the subject, camera, or technique are often highlighted as an integral part of the image.
I use all types of cameras in my work, though most often, older film cameras and Polaroid materials, which can give surprising results at times. My goal is to take pictures that make people think outside the box, to look at things differently, unconventionally or from a new perspective.
