Father’s Day

Photos of our loved ones have, in a way, become modern talismans.  We fold them into our wallets, make them the backgrounds of our phones, and hang them in our bedrooms to summon the people, moments, and feelings we want to keep close.  For Team Elledge, photos of our fathers are among these talismans.  Through them, we can trace the cleft of our chin and the shape of our smile, and be reminded of our fathers’ boundless love.

This Father’s Day, team Elledge celebrate fatherhood in all its forms – whether by way of biology, marriage, adoption or mentorship. For everything, we thank you.

Looking for Magic

© 2015 Paul Elledge

Photography has historically been thought of as a mechanical imprint of the visual world — a record of what was in a particular moment in time.  But, sometimes the camera doesn’t just record, it transforms.  It creates a world beyond what we see with our eyes.

Lately, we’ve been in the midst of some drab, gray spring days.  But the rain that drains saturation from daytime makes the city streets luminescent at night.  Ultimately, photography (like the weather!) is subject to our vision, and here at Team Elledge we’re looking for magic.
