Elina Immonen is a photographer and a biologist. Native of Finland she is now based in Uppsala, Sweden, after living seven years in UK and Norway.

In her photographic work Elina explores the mystique and complexities of nature connectedness, drawing inspiration from places and wild life close to home. She utilises her background in dance as well as in biology to tell stories through composition, movement, self-portraits and quiet encounters in nature.

 

 In addition to capturing moments, Elina enjoys preserving them with hot beeswax using an ancient method of encaustics to give images permanence and a tactile presence.  

Elina got a PhD in biology in 2012 at the University of St Andrews and currently works as an assistant professor in evolutionary genetics at the Uppsala University.
