Katie Eleanor is a storyteller and photographic artist based in London. Inspired by literature, costume art, performance, and Victorian illustration, her work is dreamy, poetic, and filled with indescribable emotion. She hand-paints each photograph. Wearing powdered wigs, white makeup, and gauzy veils, the figures resemble nineteenth-century monarchs suspended in private states of reverie and despair; elsewhere, nude figures crawl in the leaf mold and kiss crows, signifying an intimacy with death. These woeful, passionate, and mysterious characters allow Eleanor to explore her “current states of being“â€”the parts of herself she doesn’t fully understandâ€”which serves as a powerful form of therapy.
