Eleanor Hardwick was born in Oxford, England in 1993. She became interested in photography at the age of twelve when she began to take photos of collectable Japanese fashion dolls. The hobby then progressed into a passion for portraiture and fashion. Having been dubbed the 'Teen Queen of Flickr' by the likes of Dazed & Confused, The Independent, The Guardian and numerous style blogs, 16-year-old Eleanor Hardwick divides her time between studying for her GCSEs and creating surreal dreamscape-style images.
Favouring post-production techniques, Hardwick shoots on a Canon EOS 400 and distorts images to look like fairy tales with a disturbed edge. Hardwick has photographed Bat for Lashes and up-and-coming musical talent Dan Black.
