WHAT I LIKE MOST ABOUT MY WORK BESIDE ALL THAT I GET TO LEARN FROM MY CLIENTS IS THE RELATIONSHIP I DEVELOP WITH THEM.
Albert Elbilia is a maverick artist with a penetrating eye for detail and composition, fueled by an engaging curiosity about the world at large or close at hand. Through his roving viewfinder, “I have shot cars, people, objects, architecture, goats — anything that I find inspiring,” Elbilia says. “Everything that has a story to tell interests me.”
WHAT I DO ...
Born and raised in Montreal, Elbilia brings to his art a varied background in diverse media, from promotional club flyers to international fashion campaigns. Largely self-taught, he has learned a wide array of techniques and technologies often through trial and error—“just jumping in and going after it, tackling assignments and making them work,” he says. In addition to his life as a photographer, he has been a successful art director, illustrator and photo editor.
“I'M NOT SURE WHAT I LIKE BEST BETWEEN TYPOGRAPHY AND FOOD, FORTUNATELY I DON'T HAVE TO CHOOSE !”
Over the last 3 years Elbilia has aded to his rather eclectic collection of work, 5 cook book, which he both art directed and photographed with his unique artistic vision. About the books winning multiple awards in France, Spain, The United States and Canada Elbilia says. “I really enjoy these projects, i put my hearth and soul in each one of them and i thinks that’s why we are doing so well, love is contagious — we all want a piece of it.”
