Ellen Stewart is a London based photographer.  Her practice focuses around the every day in the aim to question our own associations to our private and public space. Using constraints such as her childhood house she plays with ‘making strange’ the seemingly mundane in order to explore the tension of how we look at the  everyday and 'the epic'. 

Stewart graduated with a Photography degree from the Arts University Bournemouth in 2019 and underwent the first Khadija Saye Photography Fellowship at London Transport Museum. She has had work in Elephant Magazine, PaperJournal, Source, Loupe and The Guardian. The series 'In My Fence Wall' won her representation from Photograd in 2020 and become a nominee for the SWGPP.
