this is the cover photo for my first calendar here on redbubble, the wonderful world of ferns and below the back cover.


maisha is a kiswahili word meaning “life” – i chose it for the title because ferns in general are so very old; virtually living fossils. i see them as a sort of bridge that connects us to our distant past…
