Art Crush: Kirsty Mitchell

Photographer Kirsty Mitchell merged her love for photography with her other passions – fashion design, costume making, art/film history, and the natural beauty of English landscapes – in her haunting and skillfully styled series titled Wonderland. The project started as a tribute to Mitchell’s mother (who had passed away shortly before its inception); and the destined collaboration with makeup and hairstylist Elbie Van Eeden turned the creation of these fairytale characters into a true emotional journey. Mitchell paid particular attention to the landscape, seeking out pockets of flowers that bloom for only a few weeks out of the year. All of the characters in the Wonderland series came to Mitchell in her dreams, and the natural outdoor scenery combined with scavenged props and treasures (they had not budget) made for mystical storybook images.
