How does summertime feel? There is a stanza in the song "Johnny's Garden", by Stephen Stills, that goes:
And his children Are his flowers There to give us peace In quiet hours This series is about those "quiet hours". In my imagination, these are the slow summertime moments, which are best suited to relax, to wander about, to feel the sunshine, to sink into and out of dreamless sleep, and to explore the hidden cracks and corners of our mind.
In this series, Anna Johansson, a Swedish model, poses in the garden, in the studio, and on the living room couch. The photos that were shot in the garden and the studio were made with an infrared camera. This gives those images a dream-like appearance and an other-worldly color cast. A regular camera was used to shoot those of Anna on the couch, in which she is portrayed resting and relaxing in her own version of the summer "quiet hours".
