Photographer Kirsty Mitchell will take you on a breathtaking journey with her series Wonderland. Mitchell uses brilliant hues which produce a surreal and painterly touch to the works. We see two worlds successfully meet in this series: the unnatural in contrast with natural. The elaborate costumes and objects hold intricate details, filling your mind with awe and an array of questions. The photographs seem reminiscent of fairy tales, and while they contain immense beauty, are they really scenes that end happily ever after?
