I've looked at clouds from both sides now From up and down and still somehow It's cloud illusions I recall I really don't know clouds at all
--Joni Mitchell (Both Sides Now)
In 1969, the Joni Mitchell album "Clouds" was released and included the song "Both Sides Now". The song "Both Sides Now" is, at first glance, a simple meditation on clouds and the way a child might see them, as "ice-cream castles in the air". But as the song notes, there are two sides to everything, and as we get older, we stop seeing clouds for their simple beauty, but also as a sign of rain or of bad weather. Ultimately, the song is about the ambiguity of life, and how the world comes to be interpreted differently depending on how you see things.
In this series, Anna Johansson, a Swedish model, poses against the backdrop of various cloud images. These images are offered in the spirit of the magical feeling that a child might feel upon seeing these magical "ice cream castles in the sky".
