Alphabet on butterfly wings
This Latin alphabet consists of the letters found and shot by Kjell Sandved on … butterfly wings. Sandved came to the United States from Norway to conduct research for an encyclopedia he was publishing. So began a 25-year journey that would take Kjell Sandved all over the world. Sandved had no background in photography, he took classes and read books. He made learning his top priority. “I have never hurt or killed a butterfly to get the shot”, says Sandved. In general, the symmetrical letters, such as “O” were the easiest to find, while the letter “R” was the most problematic. He often found photographic subjects in strange places, and sometimes he happened upon them unexpectedly. “Nature is so rich and unique, and different every time you walk into it,” said Sandved. “Most people go through life without really seeing.”
