Den Elliott
i've got a page on Bananacake entitled 'Resort Estate'- just thought it was relevant to let you know that i've had some of the photos from that series published in Vice Magazine as a result of being on Bananacake- the picture editor saw them on there and got in touch. It's the current issue- Volume six, Number three- the 'Homo Neanderthalensis Issue'. So thanks again for accepting my work to the website. All the best, Den Elliott.


Thanks for visiting the site. Please have a look around and get a flavour of what we are aiming for. There are some portfolios and articles which should give you an idea of the layout and to show the way content is handled here on bananacake.

For most contemporary UK art photographers the nearest they get to showing their work is to daydream about it while enjoying a cup of tea and a bite to eat in a gallery's cafe. Both public and private art space is very limited and we know that the frustration this brings is immense.

This web site offers an opportunity for practising photographic artists and informed writers in the UK to join us and get work 'out there' - visible to an international audience. Unlike the many interesting web sites that currently host art, bananacake devotes itself to ambitious, creative photography and analysis and is run on an unpaid, not-for-profit basis.

Hosting of images will be offered without fee. This is not a commercial site and any sales a submitting artist may achieve will be entirely to their benefit - bananacake will not expect a slice of the cake. We know only too well the difficulty people have in profiting from their art.

Space here will be available to suit needs; you may wish to show fifty images - or just one. It is hoped that eventually good new work will be produced as a direct consequence of having our site as a supportive outlet.

If you have any questions, please get in touch.
