Spector Books Elina Birkehag / D For Daughter

Info

Deep in the woods in Dalarna, Sweden, centuries-old Scotch pines are covered with carvings. The messages inscribed in their trunks are from female shepherds who, from the 17th to the early 20th centuries, would leave their villages to live and work together on the fäbod (summer farm). Tese young women, many of them teenagers, carved the date, their initials, and notes to each other, leaving the trunks scrawled with a kind of teenage freneticism, a coded language, an assertion of their existence: HERE WE DRAW OUR NAMES.

The artist Elina Birkehag went into the forest with her camera and searched for the trees.
