In September of 2008 Lena is walking around in her mother's garden in Skåne, Sweden. After a surgery risking of going blind, she needs to know if she still can use her eyes. She starts photographing plants extremely close, all to see if her mind and camera's eye still can cooperate. It’s the beginning of a series of pictures that tells the story of life and proximity. The photographs show us something new about the plants that becomes our food and also about the primal force and brittleness that life carries.

Born and raised in Solna, Sweden After 10 years running my own Advertising Agency in Stockholm I went to Los Angeles to further my education in art, photography, graphic design and clay sculpture.
