Geometric delineation

May 18th 2018

I’ve gone on a research trip to the Swedish countryside in preparation for a new part of Overlook Trail. Its a part about generations, heritage and seclusion. Recently I got an old Nikkormat camera (this model is from 1968 I believe) to document my work and it captures the feeling I’m looking for perfectly, I love it. I’ve also been exploring old maps from this same area and I was amazed to discover that Swedish authority Lantm√§teriet hosts historical maps online, dating back several hundred years. An incredible treasure.
