    Wow! I love this. It’s so strange. Beautiful words.

    1. Harper Eliot says:

      Thank you; “strange” is definitely what I was going for.

  2. Molly says:

    and sometimes the dark parts of you lead you to an image that makes me skin prickle. You appear so vulnerable here and yet there is also something very proud and powerful about it.


    1. Harper Eliot says:

      You know it’s odd: I’ve been looking for a paperbag for ages so I could take some photos that were more about degradation and anonymity; but these did come out much prouder. Perhaps there are more photos to be taken.

  3. Heaven says:

    Strange but very enlightening. I love the black and white of it.

    1. Harper Eliot says:

      Thank you! Unusually for me this was actually shot in black and white; it’s rare that I’m that sure of what I want.

  4. Silverdrops says:

    We can’t pretend to understand what’s going on in your mind, but the image is interesting, powerful and wonderful all at the same time.

    1. Harper Eliot says:

      Thank you; that’s a wonderful comment to read.

    Interesting. Sensory deprivation can be used to put you more in touch with those “inner senses” which may end up re-fining your perspective in general.

      The sensory-deprivation aspect of this hadn’t even occurred to me! Now that just adds another level. Thank you!

  6. John says:

    The most random of combinations can be the most interesting: sweet and sour is a culinary carcrash but is fairly popular, plus chips and mayonnaise and chocolate and chilli

    1. Harper Eliot says:

      A very interesting comment… if even more confusing than the image!

  7. Urbanvox says:

    Haha!!! Awesome!!!

    1. Harper Eliot says:

      Laughter, huh? I guess there had to be one, haha.

  8. PropertyOfPotter says:

    There are so many different ways to view this image. It’s strange and beautiful, hidden and exposed…there’s a lot of emotion in it, but difficult to truly pin-point exactly what. You did a fantastic job, and I just want to keep looking, trying to discover everything there is.

    1. Harper Eliot says:

      Thank you! That’s such a wonderful comment. What more could a photographer want than to draw people in?

  9. dizzygirl says:

    This photo has a disassociated feeling. Nice.

    1. Harper Eliot says:

      “Disassociated” is such a perfect word for what I was trying to convey. Thank you.

    This is gorgeous.

    1. Harper Eliot says:

      Thank you!

  11. Bunny says:

    Wow! That is deeply surreal and awesome :)

    1. Harper Eliot says:

      Thank you!

  12. Penny says:

    I love how strange this photo is…and the most frightening part of it for me is that we can’t see your face. Brilliant, inspiring image!

    1. Harper Eliot says:

      You know, that even freaks me out a little bit. Thank you; I’m glad you like it.

  13. Marie Rebelle says:

    OMG Harper, every time I see an image of you I just stare. This one, yet again, is BRILLIANT!

      Oh, thank you so much. x

  14. Jane says:

    You have such a gift with the camera, Harper. I don’t think I’ve seen a shot of yours I haven’t liked. This image is so odd (in a good way!) and there’s so much that could be read into it. My eye keeps going to that guy in the picture on the wall who seems to be watching you … Jane xxx

    1. Harper Eliot says:

      Thank you! I’m very happy with this image. And the man on the wall is Bill Hicks! He always watches us. :D

  15. Flip says:

    I freakin love this! The surrealism, the composition…..it’s a genius image.

      Thank you so much! That’s a wonderful comment.

  16. Miss July says:

    Looking at your image there is something to be proud about here. You are more beautiful than you could ever imagine. You are stronger than the world gives you credit for.

    Brilliant image!!

    1. Harper Eliot says:

      Um… the world credits me with plenty of power, and I do think I’m beautiful… but thank you very much.

  17. TheSinDoll says:

    Although your face is covered, your body is still very open. Lovely.

    1. Harper Eliot says:

      Thank you.

  18. Sangsara says:

    hmmm not sure what to say but impressed none the less

    1. Harper Eliot says:

      Haha, somewhat of a perfect response I think.
