Kirsty Mitchell, inspired by both the life and death of her mother, takes us on a bewitching creative journey that combines storybooks, costume design, and nature.  While each photograph is a deep and rich story, the entire series is a wonder.

Within the photographs, her meticulous presentation of flowers provide a fascinating layer of beauty and intrigue.  Even more incredible, the flowers are flawlessly integrated right into the scene and into the storyline — as backgrounds, garments, and props.

Each photograph is a masterpiece. Together, they weave a haunting and beautiful legacy that profoundly honours her mother.

This labour of love is breath taking. Especially for those of us who love both photography and flowers.
