Artist Crush: Photographer Kirsty Mitchell

I've seen Kirsty Mitchell's beautiful images floating around the web and finally tracked down who was responsible for the photographs that seemed straight out of a stylized fairytale.  Originally in fashion design, (with internships at the design studios of Alexander McQueen and Hussein Chalayan, whose influences are obvious in her work) after going through some personal and life changes, she turned to photography (and boy am I glad she did!).










Her photographs are meticulously crafted as she makes everything from raw materials and "can take up to one month to put together one photo" she said in an interview with My Modern Net.  A behind the scenes example of one of my favorite images above:
