Quotes about Mitchells work:

MARIE SUMALLA - LE MONDE: "Amazing, crazy good work."

DAPHNE ANGLES - THE NEW YORK TIMES; "Amazingly strong work. Her portraits touch the soul of the viewer."

RIXT HULSHOFF - UNSEEN: "Touching, fascinating, incredible work."

After taking an extensive amount of photo's as a travel consultant during my journeys through Africa, I realized that all I wanted to do is take images.

About six years ago at age 35 I decided to change my life around and study Photographic Design at the Fotovakschool Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

This turned out to be one of the best decisions of my life.

I could have never imagined that I would become a portrait and documentary photographer. Yet, if you would ask me now I couldn't imagine doing anything else with my life.

I think the strongest asset of my work is my genuine interest in people. What makes them tick?

Getting to know individuals is a true interest. To find out what their story is and being able to share that very story.

I would like to thank you for checking out my website and I hope you will enjoy my work as much as I love creating it!

Warm Regards,



 Christel Mitchell
