Photographer Mikko Lagerstedt crafts nature photography that is chilling with dark luminous shadows.
It is hard to believe Mikko is a self-taught photographer from Finland -- his work speaks for itself. His photographs depicted in day and night have an innately dark vibe. The figures in the photos are predominantly at a distance. No faces and defining details reveal who these ominous characters are, giving the photos a sinister appeal.
Mikko uses fog, shadows and the natural elements to disguise the figures and emphasize the beauty of the unknown and the mysticism surrounding nature. Some are views of the stars and cosmos, while others are scenic views of random places.
Each of Mikko Lagerstedt's nature photography seems intimate and one can be overcome with a feeling of serenity while viewing his photographs.
