In a busy, noisy town, there is a girl called Willow. She sees the things that everyone is too distracted to notice... including a little bird, who leads her to a tiny door in an old tree. When she steps through the fairy door, she enters a magical Wild Wood, meeting tiny fairies who nourish the earth and turn the seasons.
With vibrant, luminous photographs, artist Lars van de Goor launches an ordinary child on an extraordinary journey to discover the joy of living in harmony with nature and rewild her own home.
LARS VAN DE GOOR was born in 1964 on a houseboat in the middle of lush farmland, and here he grew up being part of the nature that surrounded him. His first passion was music, and he started to work as a photographer in 2007. Influenced by romantic landscape painters, Lars's main source of inspiration comes from the mysterious encounter of nature and light, and the main theme of his work is trees. These he respectfully depicts in their old power and timeless energy. Lars won the Hasselblad Master Awards in the landscape nature category, and the prestigious Trierenberg Super Circuit, and his work is beloved by collectors all over the world. Through the Fairy Door is his first book for children.
