Beth Mitchell Biography

Beth Mitchell is an Australian fine art photographer specializing in feminine, figurative underwater imagery. Beth photographs her elaborate sets with her and the subjects immersed in the water. This involves carefully constructing props and securing them to create her own world under the water.

This year, Beth has been a finalist and category winner in a number of Australian and international art awards including Beautiful Bizarre Photography Art Prize (Stocksy Photography, third place), Brisbane Portrait Prize portrait winner "Performing Arts" for her underwater portrait of Amy Sheppard, of international band "Sheppard" and honourable mention in the Australian Photographic Awards. 

“I am emotively captivated by the underwater environment. Seemingly idealistic images of femininity, perfected by polished technique, yet they whisper deeply into contemporary societal dialogue. My images explore and echo classic and modern art themes, as well as stories of strong female achievers. This collection takes a journey through the celebration of ethereal femininity, visual depictions of mental health and exploring what true beauty really is.”
