Eleanor Church

I'm a documentary photographer and filmmaker. I've been taking photos in the UK and around the world for nearly two decades. The subjects that I've covered are broad - from social and environmental stories to product shots, and many things in between. I've shot in extreme environments and more conventional ones and love the challenge of both. I call myself a 'documentary' photographer because my favourite thing is to catch the energy of a moment - whether that's as real life is unfolding or during a set-up shoot - capturing it within a beautiful image that tells a story.


I don’t like captions. I prefer people to look at my pictures and invent their own stories. – Josef Koudelka
