We had the good fortune of connecting with Madison Mitchell and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Madison, what do you want your legacy to be?
To whom it may concern— In regards to the legacy I desire to be the memoir of my essence to all that I was, if nothing else, that I was cinematically passionate, unintentionally inspirational and everlastingly spellbound by the timeless shackles of heavy hearted depth & an illuminated balance of self discovery proving to show that any soul can attain that hidden truth of what lies within the answer of the world’s utmost questionable mystery: what is my purpose and am I capable of living it out to the fullest of satisfaction? Within that threshold of such countless hours, late nights under windy caresses of the universe and moments shared creatively I’ve long curated upon step by step; crafted within a brick and mortar mentality of never leaving the slightest unattended to has left me with the world of fantasy intertwined between my seams of reality and as they clashed tectonically only then I realized my purpose was for my soul alone, but in that awakening my actions would be the stepping stones for others through the doors I’ve opened and the results of my own doing being their mental keys.

To show that not a single soul lacks what they crave the most out of themselves, but even more importantly that what you crave so deeply is always right in front of you before you’re gifted the chance to grab our for it and run with it like it were your last.

That even a thought, charmingly enough, can’t outweigh and outlast centuries and a thought, or daydream, is merely your reality awaiting you before your action.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
What I would say that sets me apart is the attentiveness, tenderness towards my little details often overlooked by other [artisrs] in their own work & how I view said muses. I don’t necessarily go searching for such distinct people of interest, but of course as I take heed to each moment granted as an opportunity to invest myself into someone’s finest grain detail down to the microfiber and present back them and the world within a click of a shutter (and some photoshop haha) how truly breathtaking they are in their own design etched by the Gods themselves, that they’re as swaying as a still shot cutscene within a single glimpse or blink of an eye. It’s all about passionate moments of short lived intensities or subtle indulgences shared between two souls and being vulnerably unguarded whilst feeding into the flow of that vast slave now thinning with each laugh, smile, decadent smirk & fierce glares between personal stories told or even as simple as a weekend story to bring warmth and relativity— it can all take place in an hour or stretch outwards to an entire day, but it’s that feeling of being ‘seen’, being ‘understood’, even if just within a moment of a shutter’s click.
It’s the everlasting effect, that “I’ll eternally cherish your essence as you are, we’re & forever will be”. That’s why my perspective is so distinguished in contrast to others.

I care, simply put. It’s about the body language, eye contact, comfort, concern for their well-being all blended into a sophisticated professional approach whilst tending to hair, lighting, movement, etc. I care about every detail. It matters.
It makes the difference. I am the difference.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I’m a creature of the night— A “nightcrawler”, if you will, for lack of a better term. I prefer to embrace those who I welcome into my lifestyle within a subtle build up until that climatic breaking point of pure bliss has been reached such as:

A welcoming brunch after jet lag the next morning leading to an exploration of the city’s museums, galleries, hidden gems for something sweet or salty, so of course as the hours and laughter pass us by, the night falls and upon us is my truest nature: doused in all black, formally adept, a speakeasy hidden between the bustle of the cities symphony of voices, music aplenty & late night treats we’ll find ourselves as a luxurious dimly lit speakeasy for a couple stiff cocktails, incredibly additional dinner to add to that. I’ll convince them Italian, or Japanese, I mean who doesn’t love sushi? haha

Amidst the chaos of the night each step taken with me is a stride towards them feeling as if they’re the leading star in a major motion picture and I’m the director of their life for a night, as I am to my own.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
Absolutely agreed! I’ve to admit my mother above all else, such deeply loyal sisters, creatively broadened imagination and expanded desire to understand the world through literature, films, fantasized scenarios & building throughout the structure of my inner design were truly the climatic points of how I began to view the world through this lens-like perspective. A handful of moments spent alone throughout travels overseas and back home all snapshotted with their own singularity of a few seconds or minutes are the ultimately secondhand [but primary in their own sense] inspirations of human nature, memories captivated as a mental photograph captured and so forth of that nature truly smoothed the edges to the chipping away at the layers unneeded to truly find that fire burning underneath the rubble of distractions at heart that ignited a flame of creativity unlike anything I could’ve ever imagined feeling.
