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 photographic series began as a small summer project but grew into an inspirational creative journey.
‘Real life became a difficult place to deal with, and I found myself retreating further into an alternative existence through the portal of my camera,’ said the artist. (read the rest here).
From A Series of Unfortunate Events DVD commentary track.
if you haven’t watched this film with the commentary then you are missing out, it’s hilarious. “Lemony Snicket” was completely unhappy with the film and wanted no real part of it and so in the commentary he just fucks about. Seriously, at one point he gets out an accordion and drowns out the director with his playing
"nearly all of my life"
Lemony Snicket sass is what I aspire to in life.
"Lemony Snicket" (Dan Handler) was asked if he liked the movie.
He said “I love the movie as much as someone who wrote 8 drafts of a movie before being fired from his own creation could possibly be.”
The man’s life is sarcasm and it’s beautiful.
This is honestly the best poster I have found in a while supporting breast cancer awareness. I am honestly so sick of seeing, “set the tatas free” and “save the boobies”. There is no reason in hell a life threatening, life ruining disease should be sexualized. “Don’t wear a bra day,” go fuck yourselves. You’re not saving a pair of tits, you’re saving the entire package: mind, body, and soul included. Women are not just a pair of breasts.
Yaya Deng as Lauryn Hill:
"I portrayed Lauryn Hill in this amazing shoot. Lauren is an amazing woman and has had a great career as a whole. It was fun because she is someone I look up to and have loved for years. She has always been controversial and consistently speaks her mind. Through her music and career choice Lauryn always looks to speak to her fans and really truly inspire. I loved her performance in the Sister Act 2 and I think that when I truly looked into her life and career. In this shoot we focused on her 90s style — her hairstyle and natural make-up choices. I had heaps of fun…It was so much fun portraying this incredible icon. I hope she sees this shoot. I think Natalia did an amazing job with this project and I’m glad she chose me to be a part of it.”
Olivia Lefebre as Sade:
"I look at Sade and see a woman oozing with confidence and sex appeal. It’s empowering to see a woman be so compelling in such an understated manner."
