Lapland is in the northern reaches of Finland. It is a magical world cov- ered in snow with a magnificent natural environment and spectacular lights.
Together with friends from six countries, I explored Lapland over the winter months of 2015 – 2016. Hopping from place to place, we passed our time hunting auroras, dogsledding, hiking up snow-covered moun- tains, ice-climbing, snowshoeing and doing other rewarding activities. I snapped picture after picture, captivated by the amazing auroras that ap- peared over my head, and the changing landscape and sky I saw while driving my dogsled.
To this day, I still recall the colors of the wild, the warmth of the fires and the light of the auroras that I encountered under the clear skies and freez- ing temperatures.
Of the many photos I took during my trek, I am showing here a selec- tion that symbolically captures winter in Finland. I hope my work will help you to sense the natural beauty that this wondrous part of the world bestows in winter.
Next and the last venue will be in Nagoya in November.
