About The Lost Series
The “Lost Series” is a crystallization of Arno Elias' mixed-media techniques and the powerful images he captured during his solo world photographic tour.
The journey for Elias began in India in 2011. After a lifetime of playing witness to the effects of globalization, Elias decided to travel the world and document the different forms of life that were being encroached upon by burgeoning populations and westernized economies. Whether it was the Masai tribes of Kenya, or the wild horses of the Midwest, Elias hopes to immortalize their spirit through his photography.
After the photographs are selected and printed on archival pigment paper, he embellishes each piece separately with a unique painting technique. He applies his own language, seen in different codes, using a spectrum of colors. Every piece of the series becomes its own special mixed-media photographic painting.
