A beautiful find...

Today, while reading the paper on-line, I came across something that took my breath away...


'Gammelyn's Daughter'

Kirsty Mitchell is a talented photographer, who lost her Mother to a brain tumour in 2008. Her Mother, Maureen, was an English teacher who would read wonderful stories full of fantasy to Kirsty as a child. Unable to deal with the real world and the loss of her Mother, Kirsty retreated and created a fantasy world of her own that is now a collection called WONDERLAND.




'Euphaeidae'


'A Floral Birth'



'Lady of the Lake'


'The Lavender Princess'


'Spirited Away'

 I think these are some of the most stunning photographs I have ever seen. I have been back and looked at them over and over again and never tire of them. She has lots of other amazing work over on her website;
Kirsty Mitchell Photography.

I wait with baited breath for a chance to see them in the flesh at her next London exhibition.

I hope you enjoyed them too.

Hugs, B x

Hi B,
These photos are so unique, and yes, I did enjoy them very much. I love the color purple, and she uses alot of it in her pictures. This is such an enchanting, delightful post. The last picture is just wonderful.

Wow stunning images B - I'd never heard of this artist before - I'll have to check out her site. Thanks for sharing. Have you been watching the Grayson Perry series that has been on about art and class/taste? It's been really interesting.
