Last week I finished another round of the eWorkshop «Finding Your Photographic Voice» and once again I was very impressed by the level of commitment and not the least the final result. For the last four weeks the participants were working on a personal photo project, and they were all able to show some incredible images captured during those weeks. In the next couple of weeks I will present a small edit of each of these personal photo projects, and first out is Kristina Eriksson.
For her personal project she chose to work on the theme she called «Come to Stillness». This is going to be part of a larger body of work that Kristina is compiling to a book she is planning to publish not too long in the future. Her idea is to combine her photographs each with a haiku poem. The images she captured show a broad range of subjects, from people to landscape to details. It was particularly the latter that caught my attention. Kristina has a special ability to capture those small details and moments in nature that holds stillness and contemplation in their simplicity. Just looking at them makes your mind come to stillness. There is a transcending tranquillity radiating from those images, as if nothing but peace and stillness and serenity ever exist. It’s possible to spend time with each of her photographs and just sink in and become part of that peacefulness. For more of Kristina’s work, please look up her blog Kristinas bilder.
