Beyond your Back garden

Finland, a mystery so close, but often never unfolded. What lies behind the fence that distinguishes the perimeter of your home? The most interesting scenery can be found right in front of your doorstep, but it is too close for it to look remotely interesting. Who is to say one must travel to see more? The following images have been taken in the forest that borders the flat known as my ‘garden of safety’. All photos remain untouched to intensify the reality of the beauty of nature. My solitude of boredom lead to an epic adventure that changed my perspective on the neighbourhood I live in. The long Finnish winters prevent the trees to expand in width and for vegetation to grow tight together. This created the opportunity to abandon the trails and get lost in mosquito land.
