"King of the erotic"
From a 4 page international feature in Maxim
"Icons of the greatest visual impact."
“James The First”
"This man can turn each woman into an erotic miracle"
"The incredible James Elliott"
“......deep, moving, perfectly executed.......”
“The world's highest paid photographer.
“What a joy! Here is a young photographer who without question will make his way into the art world and should be commissioned and collected as were Hockney and Kitaj (wisely), years ago...”
“At the cutting-edge....slick.......vibrantly colourful...”
"I praise one James Elliott, artist of photography to the highest level I can."
“...to describe him as flamboyant is an understatement. Anyone who prints pound notes with their own face replacing the Queens and who turns up at events in large cars with topless models could not be described otherwise.”
“His images are so powerful... his latest work has lost none of the impact, the ability to surprise or the quality of classic timelessness imbued in his earlier work. A perfectionist on an obsessive scale....”
“...England’s most original photographer....”
“....Artstar James Elliott”
"Irrevent, majestic, over the top"
“Meticulously planned, highly individualistic photographs....”
‘"Whether arriving at one of his exhibitions in a pink Cadillac Coupe de Ville, stuffed to overflowing with red balloons,throwing heart-shaped poems from the balcony of the Ritz, or being showered with hundreds of specially made ‘banknotes’ bearing a self portrait, he never fails to surprise. The same could be said of his work."
“One of the photography world’s most colourful and eccentric characters....”
“Page 3 girls, glamour models and TV personalities spilled onto the pavement as the Elliott entourage arrived - fashionably late - amidst a barrage of paparazzi flashguns. This was the opening of no ordinary exhibition...”
BRITISH JOURNAL OF PHOTOGRAPHY
“He is producing a lot of original pictures.”
“Personality of the Year goes - as it does every year - to the doyen of the gallery scene,
"...king of London nightlife erotic follies.."
“This man who is full of surprises..... one of the most controversial and high profile figures in the world of photography today” ....
“James Elliott is English.....and the most famous young photographer in his country.”
“Brit Smashes Euro Record”.
