Talking to Ants

While I was living in Tranås, I visited Göteborg several times. It quickly became my favourite city in Sweden. On one occasion, I serendipitously met one of my favourite photographers, Stephen Gill. He gave a talk at the Hassleblad Centre and I bought one of his beautiful self published books – Talking to Ants.

Throughout the Autumn months that followed, I collected leaves and dried them in this book, so I could carry them home to England without damaging them.

I rediscovered the perfectly pressed leaves when I was unpacking.
