These still life images are from my "Growing Knowledge" series. We cut trees to make books to get knowledge, and I love books, still reading every day. But the knowledge we need in our lives is in nature, we have everything in front of our eyes. This series about a circle of life for the plants, trees, mushrooms, insects and it dedicated to the natural forests and wildlife. Every picture has a mushroom and book with a different meaning and feeling, as much as love for nature and the use of irony. The series was made using only natural light from one window of my studio. No photoshop.
