I’m sure Freya would have had fun with this image. A crop from the centre of the image looks like the horse head nebula, another like a bolt of cloth…

Most of these photos were taken by Freya in the last months of her life. The only equipment she used was a camera, film, and natural light; her only subjects were the few her illness left accessible to her. The images she made under these conditions are a testament to her remarkable creativity.

I know that Freya would not have chosen the same set of images as I have done to represent her. We discussed how our judgement differed when I suggested helping her shortlist images for an exhibition. But I think she would have been happy with this selection, even though she would have disagreed with some of the choices: sadly I have no idea which.

Freya was meticulous in processing her photographs for publication, minutely tuning every aspect of an image until she was satisfied. I cannot hope to emulate her particular judgement, and have not tried: these images have undergone basic processing, and obvious crops, but that is all.
