tourism of magic for unconventional girls


Editorial for Miss Robin magazine, Postcards issue which you can buy in print here.
Photography: Ailera Stone
Model, styling and make up: Ellie Connor-Phillips

I don't quite remember how I discovered Ellie, but as soon as I saw her unique style that fits her perfectly, similar things we both like and of course her cute freckled looks (it's no surprise for anyone that I love redheads! ;D) I knew I have to shoot with her at some point. And an opportunity came really soon, when Miss Robin announced their Postcards theme and it all just fell into place. I wanted to shoot something in some natural history museum for aaages, but always felt that my ideas for it were not quite there yet, so when Ellie, tourist/postcard/vintage theme came together it all seemed quite perfect. Museum works really well for a tourist inspired story, but I didn't want to leave it at just that, as I remembered how I felt when I came there first - it was so beautiful and breathtaking, closest to Hogwarts than anything I've seen, so I decided to include a magical aspect too and show that even girls that do seemingly regular things (like going candy shopping, to the bookstore or visiting a museum) might feel like they're actually navigating a world of enchantment and hide secret magic in them that breaks through.

Another blog post coming soon with lots of film+instax images from this shoot as the story now is not fully complete.

Doesn't she totally look like redhead Elle Fanning in the one below?
