I feel restless. Maybe it is the time of the year that does it. I’m sure there are little sprouts everywhere that just can’t wait for lord winter to loosen his grip and let them grow,grow,grow and find their way up to the light! I feel with them.
I’ve always been intrigued by the life of nomads (maybe it has something do to with the restlessness!), so I was happy to discover the book above, Nomad by Jeroin Toirkens, that I found via Anna Emilia and then bought here. A book filled with photographs from somewhere that seems like a different time. Recently I also discovered the work of Ragnar Axelsson, an Icelandic photographer who has beautifully documented the life in the Arctic and Northern lands. In black & white, just the way I like it.
