Eliot dances a fine line between story-telling and photographic art. The process involves and evolves through combining talent direction, and production value enhancement. His images linger in your memory and are tactile for your eyes and imagination. "The mimicking ability of photography is what separates it from every other art form. It is fast, and effective at creating a quotation from reality.” Like a quotation it can be taken completely out of context. That is the power framing has in photography, what is included and what is not. The visual clues, or symbolism of the quotation. It is the quality of the quotation, which gives a photograph its value.
