Ele Jin is one of Shanghai's leading photographers who is working hard to close the gap between east and west. She has an enthusiastic contemporary approach to photography, producing images with a creative, individual style.

Born in Shanghai in 1979, Ele graduated from Shanghai JiaoTong University with a BA in Graphic Design. She then went on exploring fashion photography in the UK, first achieving an MA at the University of Central England, then studying at the UK's leading photography college, The London College of Printing, where she obtained a distinction in Professional Photography Practice. She came back to Shanghai and founded her own studio in 2003.

Ele has been working as a commercial photographer both in fashion and advertising for over 10 years. She also began shooting fashion films in 2009 and is now focused more on creating personal projects. Her recent photo series includes 'Parallel Spaces' and 'Falling', which has just been exhibited in Paris.

Ele is now based in Shanghai. She's represented by D'ELE.
