About The Artwork

Fine-art print photography - C-type print on Fuji Matt Paper 231 gsm. Limited edition of 25 dimension 30 W x 20 H. As part of the series The Other, The Lesson poses questions about identity and invites us to consider the limited possibilities of expressing one's true self. Limitations that we can feel due to society, our domestic situation, or even us. The modern world is still a difficult place for women, alas. Taking inspiration from the famous quote of French author Jean-Paul Sartre "Hell is other people", these staged photos explore our self-limiting beliefs and our desire to fit in, and the gap between our true selves and what we are expected to be. Using richly saturated colours that recall technicolour films, Miller offers a powerful lens through which the viewer contemplates these women in introspective moments and invites us to imagine what it might feel like if we were able to express freely without fear of judgment or condemnation, to look beyond the boundaries we've set for ourselves and have the courage to become who we really are. What if hell isn't actually other people - but the things we do to ourselves?

Elisa Miller is an award-winning French photographer based in London, UK, specializing in fine art and storytelling. Her interest in vintage aesthetics has given her a retro universe that became her signature. Playing with lights, colours and elaborated sceneries, she explores the female psyche through her cinematic lens. Her work examines issues of identity, self-perception, the effects of societal pressures on women and the image behind the outward mask. Awarded "Fine art photographer of the year" at the Px3 in 2022 and "People Photographer of the Year" at the prestigious International Photography Awards in 2021, she also received a number of other international recognitions in the past three years. In addition, she was among the finalists for the Lucie Foundation Awards in New York for "Discovery of the year 2021" and shortlisted for the British Photography Awards in 2022. Her work has been published in magazines in the USA, UK, France and Australia, and shown at collective exhibitions in London, Paris, Budapest and Tawaian.
