DESCRIPTION


About the Artist

A Brief History

Beth Mitchell is an Australian fine art photographer specialising in figurative underwater imagery. Born in 1991 and raised in Queensland, Australia, Beth invested a majority of her youth lost in creative expression through the medium of Photography.

Her images explore and echo classic and contemporary art themes, as well as stories of strong female achievers. She produces seemingly idealistic images of femininity, perfected by polished technique, yet they whisper deeply into contemporary societal dialogue.

Her work takes a journey through the celebration of ethereal femininity, visual depictions of mental health and exploring womanhood in today’s society.
