Information

Ellie Burd is a London based photographer who’s practice focuses on personal bodies of work which attempt to tackle complex themes including: women’s relationships with their bodies, mourning, loss, and dementia and its effects on both those who suffer from it and those who care for them. 

Although her work is deeply personal and derived from her own experiences, her images focus on others and how they are affected by these themes.
