Some people are just born into a troubled family. Some Children Think that alcohol abuse, and abuse are normal, they don’t know better. That’s what they get at home. Some Children get love through hitting and get these are references for their future life.
Boys learn to hit from their father. That is how you show love to a woman…well at least it’s what they think is normal.
Girls become offer and to get love and attention they get into trouble relationships. Because they don’t know better or because they want to help.
But happily there are women that somehow understand that THIS is NOT right! They fight hard to get out of a difficult situation. Maybe the last time they get hitted that is when they realize, TIME TO REACT. Out of this distructive relation. And they fight, fight and fight and survive and get stronger. They know love is better then that and has nothing to do with alcohol or drugs.
They are survivors, like Annika that came to me today, with a strong surviving spirit and a will to change Everything from negative to positive.
I tease you with a part of her Picture a red rose and a White cloth, simbols for purity and love.
This sofa, played an important role in today’s photoshoot. Thank you Växtverket in Kålltorp, our flower shop neighbour. Me and assistant Lana were moving that heavy thing just over the street but we had to stop a few times…cause it was heavy and really not easy to transport. Who says that photographers are not strong persons!
Today a new photoshoot for the Project took place. A strong woman that suffers from anxiety. I am thrilled and honored to had the chance to have her in my studio. That she took the courage to get out of her home to come to the studio, first for the interview and today for the photoshoot. When I saw her tears coming down watching her Picture today I realized how deeply this illness is rooted in a person and how this affects a normal unnormal day. I don’t Think I will ever understand it fully, not beeing in this situation, but I hope that I can help her somehow to liberate her a little bit from anxiety by showing the Picture to the World. Sharing experiences and talk about them openly, as terrifying, sad or hard they can be, is in my eyes a good way to fight against them.
Today it’s only a teaser and I will (as usually) let you know when the whole Picture will be presented for the first time.
Thank you Pia for the confidence you showed towards me and for letting me be a part of your story and your inner YOU.
was the object close to Bruno that came to the studio today for his special picture.
We had a very funny moment and we felt we were in a revue show for a short time.
The piano, the red carnation, and wonderful 70 year old Bruno.
