Photographs by Laila Durán. Written by Laila Durán and Anne Kristin Moe.
In this second book in the series “Scandinavian Folklore,” the photographer Laila Durán has spent another year traveling in Scandinavia. The journeys from Sápmi in the north to Scania and Sørlandet in the south have offered unforgettable meetings with people who uphold their textile heritage and traditions. All over Scandinavia there is a vivid interest in folk costumes, bunads, and regional costumes. Laila Durán has cooperated with museums, but has also been invited to private homes, documenting the costume traditions during both feasts and in everyday life.
The book is intended as a popular description and inspiration to everyone interested in old traditions and costumes connected to the Nordic folk costumes.
