Ella Carman is a documentary photographer concerned with photographing society as a fragment of the whole. She focuses in to the essence of the subject and gives everything to execute an authenticity; honouring the often serious issues she is visually addressing. Ella has over ten years documentary and commercial photography experience, has worked in film and post production earning three IMDB’s and was awarded a Ba Hons from Birmingham City University in Visual Communication/Photography & Film in 2015. She works independently covering social issues in Birmingham with an ever increasingly photojournalistic approach. Her work is recognised by charities such as Crisis and Some Cities CIC with whom she has worked to deliver workshops and phototherapy classes also discussing her own work and methods. Over the past year Ella has worked closely with the homeless in Birmingham as well as those living in hostels, not only candidly photographically documenting her subjects but also recording their testimonies, revealing often shocking stories highlighting a plethora of related issues such as social and family breakdown, struggles with mental health and addiction. Other areas of significance developing more recently in her work are collaborations with women’s groups in disadvantaged areas of Birmingham looking at problems arising in estates where lack of funding and public interest is resulting in marginalisation and deprivation. She is concerned and motivated to represent the reality of life for a part of society left to accept the status quo. Commercially, Ella has delivered work for Grigor Group, Birmingham City Council, Right Track Recruitment, Edge Consulting, Birmingham Review, Dark Traits Entertainment amongst others and many independent organisations, artists and bands. Ella is currently involved in documenting resident’s stories and portraits in Druids Heath for an ongoing archive with A Level Playing Field. Ella Carman was born in Solihull in 1983.
