Kirsty Mitchell's "Wonderland"

Here is a ‘grieveyard magnum opus’ if I ever saw one.  One woman weaves her pain and loss into a magnificent, healing and honoring photographic collection that digs into the origins of her love for her deceased mother and the beauty they shared together. 

“Photographer Kirsty Mitchell was born and raised in the county of Kent, known to many as the ‘Garden of England’. Her mother, an English teacher and passionate storyteller, read to her almost everyday to an age she could no longer admit to her friends. The imagination and belief in beauty became her root, and the place she constantly returns to in her work. Educated in history of art, photography, fine art, costume for film and theatre and fashion design, art became her only passion. When her mother got ill and died in November 2008, she threw herself into photography and started producing pieces that echoed the memories of the stories she read to her as a child.” - via Trendland
