We frequently receive portfolio submissions from emerging artists from all over the world. Based in South Florida, Elise Raffa’s portfolio submission is truly astonishing. Her interest in creating bizarre and surreal environmental portraits in isolated landscapes in South Florida. What makes her portfolio stands out is the simplicity of her work. The less a photograph narrates, the more it can tell a story. This modernist approach, the lack of closure makes her art, generates an adventure that is only limited by the viewer’s own imagination. The beauty of photography lies in providing barely enough clues to hint a narrative, and the rest is up to the audience to interpret.
