When I was a child, my paternal grandparents rented a cottage outside the town where they lived. Behind the cottage, there was a forest in which I played all the time when I was there.
And everywhere I turned, I could see those tiny places where all the fairies, nymphs and trolls lived.
This idea has stayed with me ever since, combined with my very strong belief in the raw, magical power in Earth and nature itself.
In this type of photography, I look for patterns, details, entrances to the homes of fairies seen through a child’s eyes. I look for magic, the way I see it – and it’s right there, if you just look.
There will be more of this. These are only a small portion of the older photographs of nature (mainly trees) that I have. I’ll post more down the road, and even do some new ones for you to enjoy.
This is Tone. She was born and named Thomas. Last summer, she came out as a transwoman, and chose the name Tone for herself.
Since then, we meet regularily to document her transition through photography.
I can’t even begin to tell you how exciting it is to see the changes that keep happening. It’s amazing.
These are photographs from the journey we’ve done together, so far. We met the first time on July 26, 2022. Tone was more man than woman back then.
Today, it’s hard to believe she’s the same person I met last year. I think of Thomas as a twin brother who has passed away. Especially since I’ve only known Tone as Tone.
I hope this project keeps going for a really long time.
I post new photographs of Tone at one of my swedish blogs (can be translated into numerous languages).
