Launch of @vogue // May 2018 // creator, editor and team lead
1 of 6 Eli Beristain (@eli.beristain) discovered her dream job almost by accident. “As a kid, I tried every hobby under the sun, and toppled over what I now do for a living,” she says. Later, Eli found photography as a way to express her creativity and explore her identity. “I initially started shooting on film purely for technical reasons, but eventually fell in love with the texture and color analog photography can provide.” ⠀ Eli is both British and Basque, which she says broadened her perception of the world. She now lives in London. “Having a dual or multiple nationality helps you examine closely the cultures you live in. Being Basque has influenced so much of what I do. At Christmas and during festivals, we dress up in our national dress, which consists of a 1800s skirt, blouse and headscarf. As a child, I used to love this, and I think this ritualized aspect of dressing up is still present in my love for colour and costume.” ⠀ Follow London-based photographer @eli.beristain’s story this #pride week.
