Friends Of Trees // #4: Nina Davidson
We’ve teamed up with 5 inspiring creatives from across the globe to introduce our very first YKRA KIDS line co-designed with artist Anna Kövecses: THE FRIENDS OF TREES - THE REFORESTATION MOVEMENT Collection!
It all starts with small steps and we’ve asked each guest to help us raise awareness through their own artistic lense, while educating children and youth about deforestation, and the importance of protecting nature.
Join French photographer Nina Davidson (@petiteschoses_) as she shows us her favorite tree in the fourth edition of our mini-series!
Tell us a little about yourself! (Where are you from? What do you do? etc.)
Hi there, my name is Nina, and although I’m French, I’ve been living in Scotland for 14 years. My husband is Scottish and together we have 3 wonderful daughters, Ada, Colette and Nico. We moved from Edinburgh to the countryside 2 years ago, but I own a bar in the city.
Why did you choose this tree (or/and the location too)? Why is this location special to you?
This tree is my childhood tree. I remember climbing its branches as a child. It’s in Cap Ferret, southwest France. I love that it’s the same for my kids now and the thought of the games we played on these branches over decades is just magical.
If you were a tree, what type of tree would you be and why? :)
I would probably be a pin des Landes. I am fascinated by the cycle of the forest over there. How fast growing they are to then let space to a new generation of trees.
