About me

Cody Ellingham is an award-winning photographer and art director based in Toyko, Japan.

His photography has a deep nostalgia for places locked in time. The aging skyscrapers of the city and the Arcadian forests of the mountain are both alike in that they are only a fragment of a myth that never was.

He has previously worked at a leading creative agency as a designer, and co-founded E&L in 2017.

Cody Ellinghamは受賞経験多数の写真家、アートディレクター。 現在は東京を拠点に活動している。 ニュージーランド北島の小さな町で育った彼の作品は、 失われた場所や時間への郷愁、深いノスタルジアを基に作られている。 老朽化しつつある超高層ビル群、また牧歌的な自然の風景は、 どちらも失われた神話の一片を感じさせる。

以前より日本のクリエイティブエージェンシーでデザイナーを務めていたが、2017年よりE&Lを共同設立。国内外で創造的なプロジェクトに取り組んでいる。
