Detroit native Elise Mesner (b. 1983) has a unique and eclectic imagination that is exercised through a multitude of media. With previous clients that include Miu Miu, Microsoft, Samsung and Taschen, and publications in Dazed and Esquire, the Los Angeles-based visionary thrives in a near-fictitious world filled with pastels, organic life and whimsical sensibilities. Idyllic landscapes are the basis for a unique aesthetic; cloudless skylines, palm trees and fruits come to the fore as symbols of energy, vibrancy and playfulness. With a keen attention to textural detail, Mesner finds unexpected dimensions and translates everyday scenery into a halcyon summer. Block colour sets and cloudless skylines capitalise on minimalist composition and high exposures – achieved through both natural and artificial lighting. Mesner utilises digital photography as a form through which to see life as a bold and uninhibited experience – packed with bright, sensory details and sun-tinted idealism.
