A fore-runner of the main work for Rewilding Childhood, I made this picture of my son’s hand bedecked with foxglove blooms before I knew that the Swedish name for this plant is in fact “finger flower”. The inspiration come from watching my children play with this and other toxic/ medicinal plants in my garden. [in case you don't recognise irony...] This particular version has its own “retro.” treatment which I will detail in the new book I start to write in September (publication in June 2010). Why this post -processing? – because I wanted to evoke the sense of something from the past – a time when children did discover the natural world for themselves rather than through the mediation of experts - something that is not often the case today.
