Visual writing prompts # 4 – Wonderland, by Kirsty Mitchell

Photographer Kirsty Mitchell, whose mother passed away from brain cancer in 2008, decided to create a series of Wonderland photographs and dedicate them to her mother’s memory.

The results are amazing. With some photos taking five months to make, and Kirsty waiting up to a year to find the perfect setting for each shot, the series is breath-taking.

Not normally one for short-stories about faeries and other fantastical creatures, I can’t help finding Kirsty’s photographs inspiring. My favourites are “Spirited Away” and “Lady of the Lake”, I think, but it’s hard to choose from so many amazing pictures. I think Kirsty has done her mother more than proud.
