You would be hard pressed to find anyone who wouldn’t agree that photographer Kirsty Mitchell is dedicated to her craft. Her project Wonderland, which sees fantastical, opulent costumes in beautiful natural settings, took her six years to complete.

Mitchell began the project after the death of her mother in 2009.

She created this collection in her honor.

The series, which Mitchell describes as a “storybook without words,” was inspired by the memory of her mom, Maureen’s, love of books.

Mitchell worked slowly and carefully, sometimes waiting up to a year for the right weather and plant growth to roll around.

The various seasons show the passage of time.

With a background in art history and fashion, the eccentric photos came together in what Mitchell describes as a “natural process.” She channeled the joy of her memories and the pain of her loss to create them in a natural, intuitive way.

Although the project stemmed from sadness and grief, it helped Mitchell heal.

She’s aware that there’s an air of sadness in some of the photos, and she allowed it to remain.

She wants every photo to feel authentic.
