To see a world in a grain of sand And heaven in a wild flower, Hold infinity in the palm of your hand and eternity in an hour. This quote by William Blake sums up so much of how I view life and what I choose to express with my images. One part of me is firmly connected with the earth, the dance of the natural world, the old mysteries, the ceremonies of life and the ever continuous flow of light and the other part of me connects to the modern, digital world of creating, I love the balance and interconnection between the two.
I've travelled the world and found that beauty is a state of mind and that what you see is a reflection of the sacred vision that you carry inside. To meet and bring out the essence of a woman in a photo session is such a joyful and beautiful experience. Equally, the quiet meeting with a wild flower or an animal in a field of green, lifts my spirit. Welcome to my world!
" Carola is one of Swedens most talented nature photographers. She sees greatness in every plant and in the old and worn, things that others are passing by. Her sense that a blade of grass can convey as big an insight and beauty as a grand view makes her unique. She believes that how we view the world depends on where we lay our focus. Her wish is that her images will help people reconnect with themselves, with nature, their inner gifts and all the magic that life has to offer."
