A cold January day, one of those without any real daylight, I met Iida and we ventured out in the cold to see what we could find around Tyresö castle, just south of Stockholm. Apparently a lot of skaters… and a few energetic walkers. But also an eerie aloneness and wilderness in one direction and a quiet stately home in the other. We pretended she was a fisherman’s wife waiting for her husband, the lady of the mansion wandering her grounds and finally at dusk she imbodied somebody a bit dangerous… a dark spirit come to take over and finally the sweet daughter of the house, is she outside wanting in or wanting to leave…
Ah, so much fun to play and pretend!
And then we had coffee and thawed after almost freezing to death.
The fisherman’s wife. Waiting for her husband, or just passing the time. Alone or lonely. In her environment.
The lady of the mansion walking her grounds. A modern day aristocrat.
Icy dusk spirit closing in on the castle. Dark and confident.
The sweet girl abandoned in the big house. Or outside. How to get in, do I want to get in, how do I leave.
