our world in real time
I'm Penney Ellis and this is my creative-practice website.
My work is concept-led with an emphasis on community and environment. Through my creative practice I strive to encourage social engagement and a sense of pride in people and place.
I have produced work in the form of photography, film and installation, and have exhibited in galleries as well as the public realm.
rooted in history – work in progress
I’ve started photographing and filming this ancient tree not far from where I live. First I photographed it from a distance, taking in its contorted shape twisting into the sky. On successive visits I’ve been drawn closer to it, photographing the incredible varied and textured surface, it reminds me of flying over a mountainous landscape.
I’ll continue putting photos up as I take them, and films as they start to take shape.
