About Elizabeth Radocchio: 
As a child, it was unusual to see me without a paintbrush, pencil, or crayon in my hand.  In my early teens I was given my Father’s 35 mm Konica film camera, and it was then that I realized my true creative love, Photography.

My creative focus is on the maritime industry with a strong emphasis on sailing.  I also have a focus on portraiture, editorial and travel photography. I aim to share my vision and passion with each image that I capture.  I find my love for photography lies in my ability to evoke emotion and create a connection between the person and the photograph.

Being from Connecticut originally, I have found my new home on Aquidneck Island, in beautiful Rhode Island. Throughout my decade on the island, you might find me out on the bay sailing, down by the water walking with my dog Lucky, or enjoying the outdoors and activities of the area with friends and family.

 My photography largely focuses on sailing/maritime, travel and portraiture. I am looking to connect my work with Attila’s film and Katie’s live performance by exemplifying fluidity, simplicity, beauty and the juxtaposition of peacefulness and intensity.
