“This world that we live in is full of enchantment for those with eyes to see it.” And after unhurriedly entering what is Beth Mitchell‘s extravagant underwater fantasy universe, the same can be said about her ethereal sets that appear to be describing a submerged wonderland, rather than a reality built just a few feet under the water’s surface. Dreamlike, conveying tales of love, enchantment and sorrow, the shoot gathering its inspiration from “The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus” makes for a striking visual journey. Click the thumbnails for full pictures: A beautiful gypsy girl, a string of dissimilar character impersonations, a little bit of surrealism affecting each of the reveries and three gorgeous models, made the beguiling illusion fully identifiable in the end. Golden sparkles, heavenly tulle and the most delicate of pastel shades further describe the garments and accessories by Begitta to have helped found the hidden universe, build the sublime spectacle. Featuring flawless hair and make-up by Kylie Eustace, you can view the complete underwater shoot at the gallery.
