"My name is Jonna Jinton. Born, 1989."

"I moved away from the apartment and the Bell in Gothenburg in 2010 when I was 21 years old to settle in the small village Grundtjärn about 100 miles away. It is a village with 11 inhabitants. This was a huge step that changed my whole life, but it was a step in the right direction. I had felt choked by life in the big city, and longed to be away from traffic, shopping malls and noise.... away from the crowded city parks... to find real forests and gravel roads.


Once in my wood-heated cabin, I felt at home, and a calm appeared.  Suddenly I had everything I ever dreamed of.... everything I ever longed for, but was unaware it was that simple. Yes, it is that simple. Silence. Calm. Glassy lakes. Serene ponds. Fresh air. Sunsets. Chirping birds. Flower meadows.  Northern lights dancing in the sky. Millions of stars that light up in the pitch-black night. The changing seasons. Nature. It felt free.  Freedom to create. Surrounded by the endless forest hospital. Here began a long and bumpy journey that led me to where I am today.


I live here in my cottage in Grundtjärn with a dog and a cat.... with a camera and a studio... with dreams and ideas. I am a blogger, photographer, artist and lecturer."
