ARTIST STATEMENT

ELYZA THERESE PARKER IS AN INTERDISCIPLINARY WRITER, FILMMAKER, AND EDITOR WHO BLENDS HER STUDIES OF LINGUISTICS, ECONOMICS, AND THEATRE TO INFORM HER WORK. 

ELYZA USES VISUAL STORYTELLING TO CAPTURE THE NOVELTY OF THE ORDINARY. SHE CREATES IMAGES THAT ARE PERSON-FIRST, UNUSUAL, VIBRANT, AND STRIKING.

SHE IS PASSIONATE ABOUT CREATING FEM-CENTRIC DOCUMENTARIES AND PSYCHOLOGICAL & SURREAL NARRATIVE FILMS THAT EXPLORE GRIEF, NOSTALGIA, AND PARADOXES. SHE BELIEVES THAT IT'S HER RESPONSIBILITY TO FIND THE NUANCE IN THE SUBJECT AND ILLUMINATE THEIR BEAUTY. 

CURRENTLY, SHE IS PARTICULARLY INTERESTED IN HOW CAMERA MOVEMENT, LIGHTING, AND COMPOSITION WILL EVOLVE AS THE FIELD OF CINEMATOGRAPHY EXPANDS TO BE MORE GENDER-INCLUSIVE.

IN ADDITION TO EDITORIAL WORK, SHE LOVES DOCUMENTING LIVE PERFORMANCES AND VLOGGING AS IT STRENGTHENS HER VISUAL INTUITION AND TENDS TO BE UNPREDICTABLE.
