The photography of Elena Maschke is free of any classifications, it seems as though she could master every style perfectly. One picture is possibly like out of a fairyland, the other image taking appears wild and destructive, romantic and elegant or even playful and freaky. The variability of each photograph by Elena Maschke and the endless facets of it as a whole is always good for surprises and this is exactly the way that brings her work alive and makes it very exciting. Elena Maschke's father brought photography for the first time to her attention by taking her as a child on his travels along and by showing her his seeing of beauty of a picture through the viewfinder. ''At that time he had his own dark room and developed truly great nature photographs that I still love today '', Elena Maschke remembers. At teenaged thus followed her first portraits by taking photographs of all her friends and developed to a professional photographer as time drew on. ''In photography there is no exact specification'', says Elena, ''you can just let go and realize your ideas.'' These ideas come from magazines and the television as well as from the interesting colour combination of a location that Elena Maschke notices during her trip to work and at the end of the day, she connects this dots. ''I'm satisfied with the series when I felt well at the shoot and when I had a pleasant cooperation with the model and the team, so that I can't hold out to edit the images until I'm home. These images are usually the bests because you can see my happiness in them.'' Like every great artist Elena Maschke also dreams of a place in the leading fashion magazines of the world like Vogue and Tush. ''Fashion is as classic as photography and I love that.''
