Bio: I am a hippy-goth. A free spirit, an open mind. Macabre lover. I’m the kind of person who usually sees bright side of things, who is almost always on the side of the weak ones, unusual ones, the ones who are in minority. And there you have it, the combination of the darkness and the light, because the world cannot operate without the two. Like yin and yang, like darkness in a tunnel and light at the end of it.

 Flash Interview

Obscurena: When you started your career as an alternative model and why the underground?

Eleanore Dystopia: I never started the career of the althernative model. I am an economy student and I do this as a hobby. Why alternative? Because alternative models model what they want and look the way they want to. Mainstream models have to look in an exact way (which I dislike, but that is a different topic) and do what they are told.

Obscurena: What do you like most? Gothic, Steampunk or Cosplay ?

Eleanore Dystopia: I am mostly a gothic model and I will stay focused on that theme, but I would like to develop myself as a cosplayer, too.

Obscurena: What are your greatest accomplishments so far? What is your greatest strength?

Eleanore Dystopia: I collaborated with Dark in love (one of my favourite gothic brands) and I will collaborate with other amazing gothic companies, so stay tuned!

I’ve been asking myself the same question and I think it is my authenticity. I am not your regular photoshopped doll, who looks like dozen other (alternative)models.

Obscurena: What are your plans for the future?

Eleanore Dystopia: Same as now, uni, photo shoots and friends.

I am working as model and collaborating with some gothic shops (clothing, jewelry,..)
I am also working in a fascinating fashion accessories, Hair and Beauty shop.
I started my modeling life five years ago with some photographers but I made some shootings in landscapes and self portraits during my degree.
I love travelling and speaking my favorites languages (english and german). I made two internships in Berlin and Munich in a photography Studio and in a video-character design studio. I hope to visit Germany again soon because I felt in love with the landscapes (also I loved England when I was studying English there).
I belong to a Steampunk organization in Valencia, called “La Resistencia”. We make shootings and Steampunk or gothic events together and having fun. I enjoy too much working with them because we all are really creative and imaginative persons.
I really love the gothic culture and style; I look like a gothic doll with extra long hair!

Obscurena Interview

When you started your career as an alternative model and why the underground?

I started posing for friends photographers when I was 15. Roots are attached to the deviant art platform where I started pulling my inspiration for self portraiture concepts. But everything became more serious in 2015 when I made my own public pages on Facebook and instagram. I chose the underground cause I never found commercial modelling job appealing. Underground gives me the opportunity to express who I really am by building my own concepts, doing my own styling, makeup and post production of photos. Also, the tattoos. I have plenty of those and commercial path disapproves them even now in 2017 when literally everyone has at least one of those.

What do you like most? A career as a model, photographer or makeup artist?

My photography job really differs from what I do as a “modelographer”. I shoot commercial models for agencies, magazines, etc. I need to say that I equally love being both in front and behind the camera. My biggest goal as a photographer is to make my models feel pretty and have fun when I shoot them. Same stands for makeup job. I mostly work with brides to be, so it’s really a pleasure to be part of those ladies big day.

What are your greatest accomplishments so far?

My greatest accomplishment is the trust clients have put in me as a person they work with. Photographers, models, brands, makeup clients, all of them. Their appreciation and reaction when I give them the final results are my greatest reason to be satisfied as an artist.

What is your greatest strength?

I need to underline that I wouldn’t be who I am today without love and constant support of my husband, my parents who taught me to think outside of a box and my friends who believe in me. But I can’t not mention a nice strong cup of coffee few times a day.

In prior performance reviews, what were your opportunities for improvement?

It all depends of the mutual goal, of course. I do accept critique if I find it reasonable, as I’m always aware of my weak points. I’m a self taught artist so it took some time to achieve the “professional” title. I had an image of how my work should look like and I chased it until I could say that I wanna present it to a public. But I’m still learning. I’m hungry for knowledge. I can say that I am “arrogantly modest”.

What do you mean “artist who chases perfection.”?

I always used to have minor heart attacks when something doesn’t work as planned. I am a completely laid back person which contradicts my vision of a perfection. My point of view on that is hard to explain. But for starters I hate seeing bad Photoshop in pictures. I can’t help looking at it without giving an advice how to make it prettier.

What are your plans for the future?

Oh, many plans! Finishing current concepts, I already made a small home studio and I taught my husband some photography tips, so it’s faster to shoot and respect the deadlines. I have amazing collaborations coming my way, new locations to shoot at, and milestones ahead. I plan on doing some charity as there are so many people who need my help and I want to be part of that. But the most important plan is to stay happy and spread beauty and good vibes as I always did. Life is too short to not live it with eyes wide open and lungs full of air!
