Book of trees text and photography by

Malinka Persson

” I am deeply in love with analogue b/w photography. There’s NOTHING like the grain, the various shades of grays, and the way the light wraps itself around whatever’s in the photograph..

I mean.. LOOK at it... it’s beautiful..

This book is dedicated to all who has ever believed in me. None named, none forgotten. Thank you.

When I was a child, I believed. I believed in trolls and fairies, spirits and ghosts, everything that lives beyond that which we can see. Today, I’m a grown woman, and I still believe. Perhaps a bit different, but I believe there are things that we cannot see, that are still there. I believe that the spirits grow strong in the nature that surrounds us. This is what I see when I spend time with trees. I see the spirits inside, I see the wood nymphs, I see where they live, where they ski, where they sing songs... I hope that I made you see some of the magic that goes on in the corner of your eye.

With best wishes, Malinka P. photographer
