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.
