Elina Banerjee is a photographer currently based in Nation’s Capital, professionally a lawyer and ecstatically a photographer/artist who shoots self-portraits. Photography was never an elaborate beginning but an inquisitive step to understanding the human forms and differentiation of thoughts. It started with the child-like attempt at capturing the most minimalistic of being present and visible to the naked eye and growing into a much-needed curbing of a lacuna called curiosity. With photography, the artist wishes to bring forward the images of not what one sees or grows to believe but what one experiences, an attempt to resonate with what one never says. | E-mail: elinab269@gmail.com

Gayswans is a depiction and awareness of my own self. The project underlines the spirituality you find in your inner self while looking past the banality of your routine. The effort of finding sexual persuasion and embracing oneself to the bone within the cemented walls of the places which I inhabited within myself and around me was the birth of self-appreciation depicted through the body of work. Self-portraits can be perceived as a narcissistic act wherein I come from a place of owning that narcissism and the acceptance of the body I am in.
