E is a trans non-binary artist raised in Columbus who's often inspired by their time living in D.C. and Los Angeles. Style is driven by the desire to help others see the power that lays within themselves. E does this with empowering photoshoots and connecting others to the human experience. In general, they are most motivated by three main things: the love of documentaries at a young age, the appreciation of life's raw expression, and living poetically.
Photography became a big part of their life during road trips, RV life, and meeting people from all around the world along the way. When they're not taking photos they're filming, cutting hair, or out somewhere enjoying life with a free and fluid spirit.
5th Element is home to a family of artists that want to showcase their talented expressions in order to help awareness and growth in the surrounding art community.
