Ellie Waters (b.1992) is a British born artist based between Aotearoa, New Zealand and Northern England. She studied Fine Arts at The University of Canterbury (NZ), graduating with a Post Graduate Diploma in Photography, in 2021. 
With her own history of emigration, through her work she explores notions of home, belonging and how we relate to the lands which we inhabit. She is currently associated with the Ebor Studio group, Greater Manchester (UK) where she is working on various long-term, social documentary projects. 

Alongside this, she is working to digitise her late grandfather's - M.J Burgess - archive of photographs,
a selection of which can be viewed through this website. 

She is open for projects and commissions. For print sales and enquiries please contact via the email below.
