Fantasyland photo series pays tribute to photographer’s deceased mother

Kirsty Mitchell created this incredible photo series in honor of her mother who passed away from brain tumor in 2008. Her mother was an English teacher, and Mitchell’s series commemorates her mother’s imaginative and inspiring personality. Mitchell’s storybook-like photos were a source of comfort from her grief, but the results of her hard work are absolutely stunning.
