She mixes her own pictures (the colour pictures) with photographs by Tenn Lars Persson (1878-1939; black and white photography) who was an avid vernacular local photographer in Älvdalen who also knew about magic and sorcery.
Daniels presents Älvdalen as a quaint place with a touch of mystery.
Her story is interesting against a background of globalisation and the local histories in Europe.
Although Daniels’ presentation is interesting and atmospheric, i missed proportionally more photographs of her own on show; as it now very much looks like an ethnographical exhibition with Persson as the central voice and photographer.
