PHOTOGRAPHER, POET, FILMMAKER AMANDA ELIASCH / by nigel daly

Amanda Eliasch defies description. Try and pigeon hole her and she flutters away into another universe. But her many worlds share a common thread - creativity. Her life and art are bound as one.
Her single sentence biography sums it up pretty succinctly "Award winning documentary filmmaker, who likes Andy Warhol, black dresses and sunglasses, who loves making neons and poetry, being a lover, mistress and a wife to all mediums and all aspects of life. Amanda Eliasch is polyamorous."

In DESIRE, her women pop off the page in fluorescent pink. Her photographs compliment the story about Alice Guy and the excerpt from Miriam Dehne's script 'I am Alice' in an other worldly yet utterly modern way. This is what fascinates and contradicts.

And one you won't see in the magazine.
