Using photography as her chosen medium, her work is created not just from pixels, but from moments in time. Like echoes, each piece is a series of moments of real life, telling the stories of inspiration, time and possibilities. History, mythologies, lullabies and fairytales all play a part in our daily lives, and Kelsi uses those memories to tell her stories.
