About the artwork
Wild + Free
Shot on a lifestyle assignment in WA, after checking out the environment and deciding that it would be an excellent setup for some freestyle topless skating.
About the artist
Travel + Lifestyle photographer based in Sydney.
Elise Hassey has an Honours degree from COFA in Fine Arts (Photomedia). Elise grew up in the small coastal town of Yamba, where she developed an interest of customs, rites of passage, community and people co-existing within the natural environment. With authenticity and intuition she creates engaging and sincere portraiture of a diverse range of peoples throughout the world. She is also fascinated with surreal and majestic landscapes - traveling to some of the most remote and obscure corners of the globe to capture them. As an artist, Elise has enjoyed notable success with numerous solo and group showings across Australia and her work has taken her to places as far-ranging as Satellite Island, the Cotswolds, Tananzia, Cambodia, Vietnam, Lake Como and East Arnhem Land. Her photography has been published in National Geographic Traveler, Vogue, Harpers, Marie Claire, Telegraph UK, The Australian, Delicious, International and Australian Traveller and has worked with an impressive list of clients, among them Mercedes Benz, Moet & Chandon, One & Only and Chanel.

Having an equal, balanced and non discriminative representation and opportunity for everyone within the industry.
What does this mean to you as a human?
We're all born free and equal, and all need to take personal responsibility in practicing inclusiveness, support and encouragement to all our fellow humans.
