In a world that gets harder and harder and where we the last couple of years have endured several global crises like the pandemic, financial issues and where climate- and environmental issues are probably the most severe of them all it has become more and more important to find ways to feel good. In Japan they created something called Shinrin-yoku, forest bath, in the eighties. It was created to cope with a stressful work life but it works just as well for other stress factors.

Book and Fine Art Prints are available in the shop.

The book is the result of my visits and thoughts in various forests the last two years. Both in the vicinity of my home but also as far away as Mount Mgahinga in Uganda’s mist covered Virunga mountains.

The project is supported financially by Region Östergötland.

The preface is written by poetic photographer Anders Geidemark.
