With freedom, books, flowers and the moon,
who could not be happy?
- Oscar Wilde
A wild roses still life.
’On a rainy afternoon mamma filled up an entire wheelbarrow,
weeding out among the garden roses.
I do as I’m always compelled to.
I press my nose & lips deep down among the petals,
until I myself am full of rain bedewed roses.
And then, in order to heal the small wounds all thorns give,
I photograph and try to eternalise.’
Hannah writes in her journal.
She tells us the photograph she named wheelbarrow
went on to be among her most requested work.
’I was honored and especially tempted when a designer
in Milan contacted me, wanting to print fabric
and make a collection of dresses.
But I wanted to save this one somehow..’ she continues.
’There are still recurring requests for buying the copyright, but I’d rather make it available like this,
- up for grabs for people who, like me,
can’t help but press their nose & lips deep down
among the petals of roses.’
