Mountains by John Hakansson
Mountains by John Hakansson
A photographic journey into another scale, when travel in the real world was limited. John Håkansson has depicted tree stumps from a low perspective and shown them having grown into mountains.

The series of pictures was created during spring 2020 when COVID-19 restrictions meant sitting home a lot. As a respite, to get some fresh air and exercise, John walked in the Nacka Nature Reserve, he stumb- led and encountered one of these tree stumps. An idea was born.

The book contains 28 photographs, one short text, and titles referring to actual mountains.

John Håkansson (b 1966) is a Swedish photographer. He studied Photography at the University of Photography in Gothenburg and the Academy of Photography at Konstfack, Stockholm. He has participated in many exhibitions, received several grants, and published two more books: I närheten and Vita husen on Trema förlag.
