Gorgeous fantasy photos

Kirsty Mitchell's late mother Maureen was an English teacher who spent her life inspiring generations of children with imaginative stories and plays. Following Maureen's death from a brain tumour in 2008, Kirsty channelled her grief into her passion for photography. She retreated behind the lens of her camera and created Wonderland, an ethereal fantasy world.

The story of how these rose to popular awareness is told by the artist here - lots of photos, the installation, and a BBC interview!
