Elena Grandal // Spain
Elena Grandal was born in the Spanish coastal city of Cartagena. In college, she had her first experience with photography while studying Audiovisual Communication, but it wasn’t until she moved to Madrid, where she took up a Master Course in creative photography, that she started developing a style of her own. What started out as an ironic study on male fantasies, quickly evolved, thanks to the enthusiasm of her nonprofessional models, into an unexpected exploration of every girl’s dreams of glamour and sex appeal.
Her subsequent work is a playful celebration of feminine beauty, a parade of girls-next-door who take a few hours off their everyday life to share with us just how sexy they can be, when they put their mind to it. Who knew, girls like fantasizing too!
