Saying goodbye to where I grew up.

    This is one of my favorite photo shoots ever!!! I love the shadow in the first one!

    #6 is my favorite… I love it when photographers/performance artists put themselves into the work, like Cindy Sherman (and, obvi, Eleanor)

    8th is my favorite, i love freckles ahh

  • Bex_cygnet July 18th, 2014 8:48 PM

    Yikes so many questions! Your outfit in the first pic is TO DIE FOR, where’s it from? Also where the hell is #7? It’s fantastic!

    Finally I think #3 is perfect , I really do! Good luck with the move.

    • Emmie July 19th, 2014 10:20 AM

    Your intro to this was really inspiring for me. I have the whole weekend to myself and I don’t venture outside as often as I’d like but now I feel a strong sense to go outside and leave these walls behind me and go out and do what I what I love most: making art.

    These are one of the dreamiest photos I have seen. I adore this. I feel the exact same way about the place I’m in for almost 18 years now.

    Perfect timing as always Rookie. I’m moving from the house that I’ve lived in for 16 years tomorrow. So weird. I know I will really miss it and I took pictures too. I’ll miss walking down to the library, laying at the pool with the lemon trees, my neighbors and walking out on the street at night. But I guess I share the excitement for the unknown, the ability for “anything and everything” to happen is a nice way to look at it.

    love these.

  • zany July 19th, 2014 12:10 AM

    I loved the intro especially the last bit about looking forward. I just drew some tarot cards and they were basically telling me the same thing :)

  • Zoe July 19th, 2014 12:21 AM

    This is so so crazy gorgeous


  • Caelestis July 19th, 2014 1:29 AM

    This photoshoot is beautiful. That house looks gorgeous and you honestly look like a princess!

  • teenagefanclub July 19th, 2014 2:40 AM

  • clocksheep July 19th, 2014 2:45 AM

    There are so many wonderful things to come for you. I just know it.

    These photos are gorgeous!

  • Kirthi July 19th, 2014 8:36 AM

    Sooo beautiful!!! How I love this. Dreamy.

  • flocha July 19th, 2014 9:48 AM

    this is so perfect for me right now cos I’m moving out of my childhood home in a few weeks and I’m really excited but also terrified that the house I live in will soon no longer be my home


  • TessAnnesley July 20th, 2014 7:00 AM

    oh my effing god, so beautiful

  • itsireepie July 20th, 2014 1:06 PM

    I love this so much! You did a great job. I’m also wondering where #7 is in your home. That looks like such a cool room! Much love and good luck out in the world, Eleanor. <3

    • Eleanor July 21st, 2014 9:06 AM

      Bit confusing! 2, 4 and 5 were taken in my house. The others are taken around the area I live in. Image 7 (and also 3 & 6) was taken at a big, beautiful house in our village where we used to have summer picnics when we were children. They have amazing ancient baths in their basement which is where that was shot. x

  • elliecp July 20th, 2014 4:16 PM

    these are crazily beautiful. I think it might be some of my favourites of your work <3


  • Emma July 20th, 2014 5:27 PM

    you look a little like Charlotte Gainsbourg in these photographs xx


  • itslaurafrances July 21st, 2014 7:51 PM

    These are precious. I especially like the one at the pool. It reminds me of that film Shoeshine.


  • Blantamara July 31st, 2014 10:49 PM

    All the pics are so good. And I’m moving out for college this year, I feel you…

    Hallo Horo

  • jesse_elise31 September 13th, 2014 9:33 PM

    Awesome photo shoot, pic 3 looks so effortless and the bath in 7 is neat and kinda creepy at the same time haha
