Kirsty Mitchell’s late mother Maureen was an English teacher who spent her life inspiring generations of children with imaginative stories and plays. Following Maureen’s death from a brain tumour in 2008, Kirsty channelled her grief into her passion for photography.
She retreated behind the lens of her camera and created Wonderland, an ethereal fantasy world. The photographic series began as a small summer project but grew into an inspirational creative journey.
‘Real life became a difficult place to deal with, and I found myself retreating further into an alternative existence through the portal of my camera,’ said the artist. (read the rest here).
Everything about this is absolutely beautiful. Not just the photos, which are mind-blowing in themselves, but the artist’s drive to create them. I’m sure her mother would be very proud of her daughter for honoring her memory in such an amazing, awe-inspiring way.
Why do I not have one of these? My life would be forever made!
