    If you captured the spirit of Europe in your pictures (and I hope you did), then Europe is a wonderful place to be. There are so many beautiful places on this planet, but your ‘billabong campaign’ lets me fall in love with all the places and the colors, the beauty you captured.
    I don’t know much about fashion photography and professional campaigns, but I know that I dislike most of the fashion campaigns in magazines. Yours is great because it’s natural; it looks like a real road trip, and maybe it was. However, this series of pictures feel like an adventure you’ll never forget. Thank you for sharing!

    I am so obsessed with these pictures. They are the most beautiful series of photographs i have ever seen. Im in awe.

  5. Justine

    i wish i could be one of these girls!

    This series of photographs is breath-takingly beautiful! You are so, so talented. The road trip looks incredible – such a fun shoot and such an awesome way to spend a summer. x

    I believe that Europe is the perfect place for finding a special and specific type of freedom. I think you have captured that, and so this is why I like these photos and have felt compelled to comment. I lived in Europe for a year when I was 18. I feel that I have truly become a woman and have tapped some kind of inner spiritual strength since growing, birthing, nurtuting and raising my babies – in a parralel respect, living in Roma was a different, younger, more self-centred kind of that same growth. I do like the beauty, colour, and creativity of your photos, but what I like the most is your capturing of this sense of freedom, of which perhaps strength and beauty are by-products. Will be keeping my eye out for more of these photos :)

    You are such an amazing artist Nirrimi – honestly everytime I love how consistent you are, your storytelling is amazing. I found myself wondering about who the girls where, what else they’d been doing. Totally lost in the beauty.

  9. Steph

    I think my favorite so far, is the street view, with the tree full of flowers and the girl walking over the line : )

  12. Alexandria

    I’m so happy to see you blog again. I love these pictures. They are so natural and the girls are so pretty too. You really capture the essence of youth and beauty in Europe that I’ve always heard about. I’m looking forward to parts 2-5!

  21. Han

    I found myself extremely jealous of these girls. Through your photos, their beauty, the simplicity and lightness of their life were animated. Too gorgeous, the girls, the places, and especially the overall encompassing of these photos.

  22. Adriana

    ah nirrimi
    ill wager you get a million compliments but I do totally dig the second from last, I like seeing you bust out of your whimsical side and show a cheeky nirrimi who isn’t afraid of controversy every now and again.
    Complete jealousy for your amazing talents.
    Big X little x

    What a wonderful photographic adventure! These images (like most of your photographs) make me feel like I’m watching a documentary/drama program about young people. So beautiful and full of freedom and happiness.

    The very first picture is my absolute favourite! It just screams Europe to me. Where exactly was it shot? Feels like London?

    I also wanted to ask. What camera lens do you use or would recommend? I’m looking into treating my Canon to a new friend.

  33. Lauren

    Beautiful Work Nirrimi. I can’t believe you shot this in your first trimester. Incredible. Can’t wait to see the rest.

  34. Jessica

    Beautiful photos that all catch such moments; it looks like you really had fun whilst working hard on this trip. Thanks for sharing part one.
