Photographer of the Week - Ewa Stackelberg
Water is movement, mirroring and base layers. To find a source within me, I went back to my childhood waters. Equipped with high boots and a desire for peace, I went to my Småland lakes, streams and ponds. I sat down in the rain and waited for the raindrops to speak to me. Submitting myself to the waves like in a dream searching for the hidden secrets below. A reflection of a cloud drew a heart, white and joyful.
These water slides are from a series of silicone-mounted photographs and can be seen at The Department of Transplantation Surgery at Karolinska University Hospital in Huddinge.
