Ellie Ramsden is a photographic artist based in London.

Ellie's love for underground music and youth culture have led her to document London's contemporary music scene over the past five years, self-publishing her first photo-book 'Too Many Man: Women of Grime' in 2019, and releasing a second edition in 2021. 

Much of Ellie's work aims to question stereotypes, stimulate discussion and give new perspectives. In her personal projects, she is interested in exploring aspects of British culture through various communities, especially those which are rarely documented, or who choose to live outside of the conventional constructs of society. 

Ellie divides her time between personal projects and taking on photographic commissions. Her work has been exhibited internationally as well as being widely featured in the press.
