Wonderland: Fabulous Photography by Kirsty Mitchell
For almost five years, UK based photographer Kirsty Mitchell has been creating one spectacular portrait after another for her enchanting Wonderland series which is part tribute, part conceptual photography, part exploration of costume and set design. So far, she has created sixty-nine pictures in this collection and soon this whole series will end. The whole project is inspired by the memory of the photographer’s late mother who shared fairy tales with Mitchell when she was a child. Making use of her background in fashion design and costume making, everything you see in Mitchell’s photos from the costumes to the sets have been sewn, painted, glued, and assembled completely by hand. Thanks to the filmmaker Richard Wakefield of FX Media, we will be able to enjoy the behind-the-scenes videos which record just how time-consuming and skill needed for each of her final shoots. And a full length documentary about the whole project which will be released online probably by March next year.
