beautiful | colourful | meaningful | creative
Elena Levkovskaya (aka Olena Levkivska) is a self-taught fine art portraiture, beauty and fashion editorial photographer and painter based in Sydney, Australia. Her work focuses on artistically capturing the beauty of her subject, regardless of the genre.
"Photography allows me to show the beauty that I see. I literally put it in the spotlight, enhancing it and making it evident. I use my skills to find and show my respect with admiration to the hidden and unhidden treasures of the subject I photograph, where every detail has the meaning and the right place.
As a photographer and painter, I love to combine the beauty of human bodies and paint and/or other media, so you may find my artworks full of textures. For me, this combination is the purest and the most honest depiction of the subject with a hidden message. Always. Every element is in its right place and uncovers the story. The compound of these elements is my distinctive feature. This is my identity."
Elena is the recipient of numerous awards including 'Top 30 Photographer of the Year 2018', Australia. In 2020 she was included into list and published in book 'Leaders in Contemporary Art', which is a captivating documentation of today’s leading contemporary artists showcasing current artwork of the highest calibre.
Her photographs have been exhibited in Sydney and featured in beauty and fashion magazines across the globe, including Vogue and L'Officiel.
