EYES ON THE SOUTH: Miranda Ellis

Emerging Southern Photographer:

Miranda Ellis—Atlanta, Georgia

In her series Attachment, Miranda Ellis documents the slow disintegration of her parents’ marriage. With this work, Ellis shows us a different version of marital collapse, one that happens not suddenly, but in phases, caused by the gradual piling up of life’s tragedies. The quietness of her images tells a story that does not have an ending, but one that continues on with everyday habits as well as more pressing responsibilities, like running a small business.

The subtlety and intimacy of this work could only be captured by Ellis. She, having full access, notes the small details of the house and workplace, many of which are remnants of happier days. She also has unrestricted access to her parents’ psyche, and captures the quiet desperation that seems to permeate each of the portraits. To see more of Ellis’s work, visit her website
