Bio

 


Elza Jo Tratlehner is an established photographer, graduated from the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague.

She is known for her eclectic photography far beyond the borders of the Netherlands.

Over the years, Elza Jo has worked for several large international brands

and prefers to portray the leaders in music and fashion.

Looking at Elza Jo's photographic style and rough approach, the next step was almost to be expected;

she dived into the world of the documentary.

Elza Jo is known for her ferocious, explosive and unique style and tries to tell stories in her own way.

Jolene (2018) was her directing debut.

For Elza Jo, this is just the beginning.

She now focuses primarily on the role of the new heroines in music and other female role models.
