An old vintage photograph in black and white was the inspiration for this print. Because Wanda was a “farm girl” and this was one of my favourite photos about time, travel and incredible odds getting from one place to another with unbuilt roads and unknown destinies I thought this photo was appropriate especially putting it into a sunset setting.
Wanda’s contribution to Baren was very much appreciated even from someone on the opposite side of the world.
