Ing Marie saw one of my lectures at the Swedish Church earlier this Spring and came to me afterwards with the desire to be part of the project. We talked together and after her story we decided that we wanted to take a generation picture. Mother and daughter lived a part so many years from eachother, missing eachother so much. Finally destiny brought them together again in the same town, in the same country. And when Sofia got her baby happiness was completely for grand-mother Ing Marie.
This Picture is only a teaser but it show anyway the love, happiness and longing in their Eyes.
Life is a circle. This we know for sure. This circle has for me different layers.
Our birth, our childhood, our teenage period, our adult time. Sometimes we get children, and then suddenly we are having grand children. We work. We retire. First our mother takes care of us. If we are lucky enough for a very long time. Then suddenly things can change and it’s our turn to take care about our mother. it’s a normal turn I want to believe.
Today I am filled with energy. I finally had the big opportunity to photograph a wonderful lady from the Island of Gotland together with her beautiful daughter. I look at the and my heart fills with love and compassion. I get drifted away into my own relations ship with my mother that unfortunately passed away 5 years ago, far too early if you ask me. But I can sense the same feeling by watching at it. And I do hope that many women can relate to this feeling.
I am so sorry that you will have to wait to see the whole Picture until the books comes out or maybe soon in an exhibition later on this year. So for today it’s only a tiny part, a teaser Before the week-end.
