After several years as editor and deputy fashion director for various fashion magazines Elke started working freelance to combine her love of fashion with her passion for travelling and culture. She loves taking her inspiration from literally everywhere, from the international runways to authentic everyday situations, places and colours. “I love the act of creation, when the model is not only beautiful and perfectly dressed but expresses something more, a modern and authentic feeling, a sense of now. That’s when I feel truly touched. That’s how I find a part of myself in everything I do.“ Elke is currently based in Munich and London.
