Keith Ellul is a photographer who mainly but not exclusively shoots landscape/seascape. Through his photography he attempts to express his mood and feelings of the locations he captures, to impart that same experience he feels to the viewer. Keith is a devoted photographer, he published his first photo-book in December 2015 – ‘Beyond the Horizon’ and he set up his first solo exhibition in March 2016 – ‘Harvesting Light’. He was also part of a collective exhibition & publication organised by APS Bank Malta - 'Diversity - Recognising Individuality' He obtained the Associate of the MIPP in 2017. He has won various International Awards, namely in the Prestigious Black & White Spider Awards, International Color Awards, ND Awards, Monochrome Awards & Monovision Awards. His style of photography, being a landscape or urban environment, has always a common factor, motion or movement. He considers the camera as a time machine, where he can briefly arrest time and immortalise a period of either a few seconds or minutes in a single frame. When asked why photography? He has no clear answer. Rather, it’s the same as how some people turn to sport, religion or other disciplines to find purpose and meaning to life. Photography has given him a clear sense and appreciation of who he is.
“Inspiration is anything.”
Keith finds it hard to pinpoint artists in Malta or abroad who inspire him. Rather, he believes the artist needs to define himself or herself through discovery of a personal style. Inspiration, he explains, is anything, in how one sees the world around oneself.
