Stills from a movie that exists only in Petra’s imagination.

    Great photographs!

    Cool. I think I’d really enjoy this movie. I imagine it’d be the type of movie you’d watch during a rainy autumn after coming back from thrifting or grocery shopping or something. Just watching it in an itchy sweater.

    Agh…I’m thinking of a movie this kind of reminds me of, but I just can’t think of the title. Like, I have a feeling. I don’t really know what I’m saying.

    Greatness, Petra. Always love your shoots.

    This is such a beautifully executed idea!

  • _Mica December 26th, 2011 3:29 PM

    What a nice collection of pictures, they would make a great movie

  • MADZ. December 26th, 2011 3:30 PM

    The styling of these photos is like if Margot Tenenbaum and Clementine from Eternal Sunshine of The Spotless mind had a friggin awesome love child.

    Beautiful eye candy canes (festive candy, wooh!) My eyes be gettin fat from all dem sweets.

    obsessed with the library shots, number 5 is so intriguing. love it!

  • ShockHorror December 26th, 2011 4:00 PM

    Beautiful photos! Love the colours and clothes too.

    I don’t know why, but really makes me think of Submarine, though i feel this film would be far more serious than Submarine!

    Eva looks so much like Lady Gaga in stills 1&12!!!

  • Marguerite December 26th, 2011 4:42 PM

    @Sarah – i think it’s her nose…

    These are great, i think #3 is amazing, i really something about public libraries, but i don’t know what…

  • QuirkyChick13 December 26th, 2011 5:18 PM

    I would watch this movie! These are beautiful photos. Im absolutely in love with them.

    This is brilliant. The pictures are so believable and when I look at them, they play out into a little film in my mind. It reminds me of La Jetée, a french (post-apocalytpic time travel) film from 1962, which is made up entirely of black and white still images, with a beautiful french narration and spooky music. It’s awesome, so awesome that i did my Science Fiction unit English speech about it. It is crazy how much movement is created without actual moving images. I recommend everyone watch it, and it would be so cool if, Petra, you could turn your beautiful images into something like this! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cTFzA5HsIbs

    this would be an amazing movie :D great shots!

  • Raebbies December 26th, 2011 6:14 PM

    I don’t know why the last picture spoke a lot to me.

  • Margot December 26th, 2011 6:27 PM

    Great idea, agree with Sedgwick.
    This SHOULD be a constant section – but it also should be more original or personal.
    It’s ok to be inspired by things, but this is a bit too derivative from icons we already know and love (also thanks to RookieMag) like The Royal Tenenbaums/Ghost World/Eternal Sunshine of The Spotless Mind, isn’t it?
    Keep developing!

  • Naomi Morris December 26th, 2011 6:35 PM

    this might sound reallyyyy strange, but it reminds me a little bit of ‘paris, texas’?

  • mwong1025 December 26th, 2011 8:34 PM

    That’s the EXACT colour of hair dye I’m looking for, where is it from?!?


  • unicorn December 26th, 2011 8:54 PM

    She looks so much like lady gaga.
    And I really want to watch this movie.

  • book_kitty December 26th, 2011 9:11 PM

    In 1, 2, 5, 6, 10 and 12 Eva looks very Lady Gaga-ish. The makeup around the eyes especially. And the pink hair and long face.

  • Adrienne December 26th, 2011 10:03 PM

    I absolutely love these pics, especially #3. :) Her fur coat reminds me of Margot Tenebaum’s (loving today’s background btw).

  • December 26th, 2011 10:48 PM

    I should use the last one as inspiration for a story of my own… What’s happened to this girl? Where’s she going now?

  • Tanya December 27th, 2011 1:51 AM

    This is beautiful! Incredible beautiful.

  • SpencerBowie December 27th, 2011 3:32 AM


    Not really! I LOVE THESE!

    Perfect in every way! Petra, u slay me! Keep it up!


  • Izzy December 27th, 2011 10:50 AM

    Beautiful pictures! I would love to watch this movie, and number 3 is amazing!

  • Rita Unicornia December 27th, 2011 4:06 PM

    I just love it! It’s amazing, I mean she’s gorgeous and the photos are AWESOME! Awesome styling and her hair fascinates me!

  • rubyhobbit December 27th, 2011 8:54 PM

    I have to see this film before my breaks over!

  • rubyhobbit December 28th, 2011 2:24 AM

    if only haha

  • julalondon December 28th, 2011 6:11 AM

    Oh i wish this was a real movie…

  • Flower December 28th, 2011 10:38 AM

    This actually reminds me of Tel Aviv, for some reason.
    Is it based on any particular movie?

  • maggiemadge January 1st, 2012 9:25 PM

    These photographs really tell a story. From the styling and poses that Eva and Madelyne created to the shots Petra did. Actually this is how I think when I’m rooming around. Nice work!

  • maddzwx January 2nd, 2012 2:50 AM

    I wish I could watch this movie

  • nnaffets January 2nd, 2012 2:20 PM
