Huldra

by Robert Westerlund

This is a photomontage, containing two images (which I borrowed from great photographers, thank you!) + a little reflection in the water. My intention? ATMOSPHERE! ******************************************************************************************* I really saw something which could have been a huldra/skogsra (or a ghost) when I was about 10 years old. It happened a beautiful summer evening (around 9 o´clock) in the middle of Sweden at a lake together with my grandfather. We were about to go out on the lake with a small boat ... suddenly my grandfather shouted "look!" We saw a young (grown up) woman in white dress and long hair (blond/light/white) who came running on a nearby jetty (within 5 - 10 meters distance from us) towards the water. Her hair and dress moved/flapped in the air. There were no sounds of footsteps and it vanished quickly after a few seconds.

    Thank you Sarah, Margaret and Alan! Yes, it is Norwegian-Swedish folklore. These folklore girls have many names, huldra, skogsrå, vittra, etc.
