Have you also experiences how some photographs or photoart can bring memories and dreams?
For many of us there is a romantic and healing glow of old magnificent Earth´s forests, meadows, water and mountains - full of life and hidden places - where old wisdom, plants, summer flowers and mythical beings live.
The inspiration for the photographs and photoart comes from divine nature and spiritual, divine moments. Old romantic winter art and splendid christmas memories comes from our winters in Sweden and lovely old romantic christmases that I growed up with. Traditions that also my children, Madeléine (Madde) and Gustav growed up with.
I´m half estonian (Sareemaa) on mother´s side. My father´s side originates from Dalarna (mostly Gagnef). I´m very fond of Dalarna and even if I don´t live their permanently. I have spend a lot of time there, with my family, in a place that we had for many years. Mostly of the photos are from or inspiried by that part of Sweden.
To express myself by capture the essence in a nature landscape or a winterdream with the camera - is for me a way of living a dream. As to sink into a essence, take it into the soul and express it.
