A longing for nature-
Up until 2010, Jonna was living in an apartment with her family in Gothenburg city.
Here, she was studying to be a nurse assistant and became depressed with city life.
So, Jonna dreamt of moving to the countryside and at that time, her mother also shared this dream.
At that time, she used to immerse herself in playing video games like World of Warcraft, etc. to escape her unhappy city life.
Moving to Grundtjärn & initial struggles-
In 2010, at 21, Jonna quit her studies and moved to Grundtjärn, a tiny Swedish village located amidst forest.
At that time, it had just ten inhabitants.
She moved to Grundtjärn as she had roots there for twelve generations and also, the nature and silence of the village enticed her.
Even though Jonna felt at home in the village, during that time, she didn’t have a job and money and was clueless about her future.
Also, she struggled with the long cold winters and had to dedicate most of her time to just keep her old house warm.
Realising her dreams-
Even though living in Grundtjärn was challenging, this didn’t affect Jonna’s love for the village and so, she started exploring opportunities by which she could make a living while staying in the village itself.
She started with photography.
Even though Jonna had a camera while living in Gothenburg city, as she wasn’t inspired by the city life there, she didn’t start photography but later when she moved to Grundtjärn, she got inspired by the scenic nature here and started photography.
