 Felwa, faded, pale yellow, similar to the colour of the earth.

| With a beautiful design by Mainstudio.

The photo-book Felwa is a chronicle of transitions that explore an essential paradox of nature, namely that change is the only constant. Structured like ripples in a pool, the book begins with references to the past examining our ancient emotional relationship with the world in terms of mythology and belief and ends with the scientific data based view we have today. Within these parameters we explore relationships to place ranging from the 10,000 years of human habitation to one summer during which everything changed

The book contains an analogue photographic record in sections where a specific environment such as the farmyard in relation to a human life, the grassland in a re-wilding process from agricultural land to nature reserve, the brook as a primal vein, the forest where old stories still wander, the burial mounds that refer to millennia of human activity and the age-old habitat of vegetation. come together in image and language.

As a leitmotif throughout the publication are extracted plant dyes, or Florachromes, and their names, taken from plants growing in relevant locations  linking the different time zones.

Seven essays reflect the layers and concepts of the visual document. The essayists are: Lucette ter Borg, writer and art-critic,Thomas Schirmböck, art historian, Nina Svenson, art historian, Bill Barnes, Professor of Photonics, Norbert Peeters, botanical philosopher, Robert van Altena: art critic, Annemiek Rens, Art- historian and Curator, Foreword Alexander Ramselaar, art-collector.
