Ella Roze Bandouveris is a multimedia artist and designer interested in sculptural objects. Medium agnostic, her work illustrates sunsets, car interiors, palm trees, sidewalks, and shadows, meditating on her lived experience as the oldest of three sisters, born and raised in Los Angeles. Guided by visual familiarity, her work aims to reflect on the familiar, and also reinvent design futures.

*And My City Held Me

The Book and The Movie


Multi-part project, July 2022 - May 2023.
And My City Held Me is a photo book that reveals a perspective of contemporary girlhood within the context of the City of Los Angeles. Using the photo book as a compass, director-duo Ella Roze Bandouveris and Sasha Ivanir joined forces to create a short film that feels like it could live inside the book. It premiered May 20, 2023 in Los Angeles. Watch it here

This sustained investigation has helped me to process growing up in LA. I have been able to visit "spots" that informed and inspired me as a kid. I have been able to commemorate these places as well. Since releasing the book and film, young people have reached out to me sharing that that they were able to relate to the essence of LA youth. I aimed to capture nostalgia while documenting pure the Los Angeles landscape, friendship love, and youth culture.
