Elena Helfrecht was born in Germany in 1992. She grew up remote from big cities and is influenced by the dark forests and folklore of Bavaria. Starting with drawing she soon discovered photography and developed a great passion for it. Over many years she taught herself everything she knows about photography now. The goal of Helfrecht’s imagery is to visualize human thoughts and emotions. Her works are meant to question the traditional definition of beauty and to take a closer look at what makes us human. In 2015 she finished her Bachelor of History of Art und Book Sciences in Germany.
