Passion: Photography and Filmmaking
Trippin In: Tokyo and Paris
Why do you travel?
I like to step outside of my comfort zone and what I’m used to to be exposed to new ideas and experiences. I hate routine.
What brought you to Paris?
No reason. Just wanted to get away.
How would you describe Paris to someone who’s never been?
Pride, history and narrative everywhere.
What was the best thing you ate / saw / experienced on the trip?
A man playing the guitar I couldn’t hear on a subway car across from the one I was on.
What took you to Tokyo?
I was on tour with my friends who are artists. This was my third time. I just love the bright lights, the fast pace and how despite all that, it still feels peaceful.
Is there anyone you met on your trip that’s made a lasting impression?
No. I’m a quiet person at heart but should talk to people more.
What’s in your camera collection?
Leica M6, Mamiya 7ii, Contax G2 & T3, Canon 1dx, Hasselblad 503cw, and a Leica Q.
What’s next for Ellington?
I want to shoot for publications and also write an original short film.
