Mikko Lagerstedt is a self-taught landscape photographer passionate about capturing the natural wonders of his home country, Finland. He first became interested in shooting these incredible vistas when driving to a relative’s cabin in the countryside one summer. “After a rainy day, the sun started shining, and the fog was rising in the fields,” writes the artist in his statement. “I just had to stop and watch this beautiful moment and then I realized that I want to start capturing these kinds of moments.” Ever since then, Lagerstedt has spent his time capturing Finland’s glittering night skies and pristine forests, using his expert editing skills to bring out the otherworldly qualities of these real-life settings. His work makes us want to book plane tickets to Finland already.
