A DEMONSTRATION OF THE SIGN OF THE HORNS

 

I took this series of photographs on a snowy afternoon in December when the light was strange and we were out playing in it. Stina-li wrote my name in the snow by walking it. I followed her without knowing what we were writing. After that, I walked a heart with an arrow through it and she followed me.

Stina-li had begun to make the ”devil sign”. For some reason, I don´t know why, she did it several times when she realised I had raised the camera to take pictures.

We then built a snowman whose base turned out to be too heavy to move.

I had no light meter that day, so I happened to underexpose some of the photographs. The people became black as shadows: a family of cut-out dolls and ghosts.
