Artist and photographer, Eleanor Hardwick, began taking photographs at age thirteen. Eight years later she boasts a career that most would consider a lifetimes worth of work and credibility. From curating exhibitions, collaborating with Dazed and Confused and Meadham Kirchoff, being featured in Vogue at 16 and becoming a staff photographer at her blogging contemporary, Tavi Gevinson’s ‘Rookie’, it seems everything she produces turns to gold.

Growing up in Oxfordshire may have been partly responsible for her dreamy, fantastical aesthetic, often featuring hedonistic girls and a backdrop of grungy, bohemian woodland/bedrooms/city scapes. Last year, Hardwick gained industry acclaim for her publication and exhibition, Twenty Thirteen, at Doomed Gallery, in London. She curated 42 young female artists to celebrate vision, age and feminism. She’s now back with her second zine, Shapshifting, that she’s producing with Olvia Aylmer. Featuring 25 artists, they wanted to explore “human’s close relationship to cycles of the elements” and see how this concept was interpreted by different people.

The launch for Shapeshifting will be at Freud, Jericho in Oxford on Thursday 29th May. To read more about the project, read her interview with Dazed Digital.
