Rosie Hardy Escapes Into Fantasy Worlds Through Her Self Portraits

Manchester-based photographer Rosie Hardy’s self portraits are set in fantasy worlds where there is an unmistakable sense of romantic beauty. Describing herself as an “escape artist” on her blog, her work lets her experience feelings of magic and go to places in her mind that she never knew existed. As she continues shooting for the 365 project, each surreal composition briefly takes her away to a place of peace, experiencing feelings she has never felt before.

She sets the tone of each photograph perfectly, using somber romantic colors which allow any viewer to feel the same tranquility she is experiencing. Her worlds seem stopped in time, as if we are being invited in to explore them ourselves. We’ve selected some of our favorites from her surreal self portrait series below.
