I stood on the bridge that crosses the busy Gudöbroleden in Handen yesterday. Aiming my camera at passing motorcycles and classic cars in the roundabout, when I noticed someone walking past me. And as I can never resist a redhead I jumped on my bike and caught up with the girl near the shopping centre. This is Denise Fernström. Born and raised in Haninge. She was late for work, but decided to give the photographer a few minutes of her time. We talked a bit about her tattoos, Denise have two sisters and all three girls have the same ink as a mark of family and love. Denise have struggled with mental illness, something she now have behind her. She was easy to talk with and I could easily have spent more time taking photos of her. She works with home support/ personal care. But, and this is the big one, she will soon be able to add another title to her CV. Denise have finished her first novel! It is a poetry/fiction book, a Gothic novel for young readers. So remember where you heard about her first!
