Based in Moscow, Elena Volkova is a vintage inspired collage artist. She started making her first collages in 2015 using advertisements from the 1940s and 1950s and quickly became known under the pseudonym of Emilia Elfe. Inspired by the extraordinary uniqueness of all women, her whimsical and glamorous style develops as a tribute to the masters of fashion photography, such as Horst P. Horst and Richard Avedon, among others. When asked about her creative process, the Russian artist explained: “Firstly, I choose the photo of a woman who inspires me. I then analyse her characteristics – state of mind, personality, mood, etc. - and finally, I reveal what I perceived by adding details through collages.”  ... See more See less
