Elf Dalia

Published by MACK

In Elf Dalia by Maja Daniels depicts the day-to-day life of this community in Swedish valley of Älvdalen, which speaks the near-extinct ancient language of Elfdalian. She combines photographs taken from 2011 to 2017 with curious pictures from an archive amassed by a man named Tenn Lars Persson (1878 –1938), a local inventor, mechanic and photographer. “If you follow the river north from Mora, you will reach a community with a dark, insular spirit”.
