I recently happened upon work by Finnish photographer Mikko Lagerstedt, and I am absolutely in awe. His photographs are entire worlds upon themselves, in which magic exists and where there’s often something – a slight sense of unease – that gives you goosebumps.
The photographs are among the most atmospheric I have ever seen, and to me actually come very close to storytelling. And what is especially amazing is that Mikko is entirely self-taught. Now here is something to encourage me to pick up my camera manual again.
Max and I are still looking for something that really speaks to us to fill some empty spots on our walls, and Mikko’s photographs have just become serious contenders.
What do you think, would you hang any of these Mikko Lagerstedt pictures in your house? Which one would you choose?
