With a predominant interest in sexuality and how individuals come together to connect, Ellie English’s first solo exhibition at Doomed Gallery explores what value we place on intimate interactions. Through the practice of photography, English’s work acts as a means of building bridges and creating a space in which important questions are raised & conversation is provoked. 

“Not wanting to give too much away, I’ll keep it brief; the work being shown is speaking of non monogamy, the drifting from lover to lover as well as the still and in-between moments that come with that. My intentions aren’t to push at the adoption of such a way of life, but to show a perspective. An alternative perspective on love, connection, sex and relationships.

I’ll also be showing a large number of instaxs, which has been my sole method of photographing for the last 2 and a half years, it will be interesting to exhibit my work in such a way that also speaks directly of my photographic process. I’ve built up a pretty good relationship with Doomed Gallery over the last year, so its great to finally have a show there, and the space works really well with my work.” – Ellie English, recent Metro Imaging interview.
