“Unless you’ve put the graft in, you’ll be found out”: the action-packed photography of Elaine Constantine

By Daphne Milner

“I was a teenager in the late 1980s and unemployed,” Elaine Constantine tells me first off. “Like most kids my age at that time in the north west of England, my prospects were bleak. I’d been at a bad school and unless you’d been lucky enough to go to a grammar school, you came away at 16 still struggling with the basics.” Renowned for her honest, expressive and observational photography, Elaine is now one of the most well-respected photographers in the fashion industry, a Bafta-nominated film director and has exhibited in legendary exhibitions like Tate Britain’s Look at Me and the V&A’s Imperfect Beauty.
