A photographic journey into another scale, when travel in the real world was limited. John Håkansson has depicted tree stumps from a low perspective and shown them having grown into mountains.
The series of pictures was created during spring 2020 when COVID-19 restrictions meant sitting home a lot. As a respite, to get some fresh air and exercise, John walked in the Nacka Nature Reserve, he stumb- led and encountered one of these tree stumps. An idea was born.
The book contains 28 photographs, one short text, and titles referring to actual mountains.
