‘Umea, Sweden’ [P07987] was made at Umea while Frost was directing the summer school there. It has generally been Frost's practice to make prints when the facilities have been easily available to him. This print depicts three circles in outline separated from each other by two roughly cut squares printed in dense black. The configuration is arranged vertically and ‘is to do with the sun’.
