mikko-2

My name is Mikko Lagerstedt; I’m a self-taught fine art photographer from Finland. I am drawn into night- and atmospheric photography and I love to capture simplistic Finnish landscapes.

I like to create visually, and emotionally captivating pictures and my goal is to capture the feeling I had when I took the photograph.

Ebola by Kieran Kesner

It’s questions like this that seem to be the norm here in Liberia. Since March, an outbreak of Ebola has swept through the country killing over 1,200 people (as of September 2014).  On August 27, 2014 I boarded Delta airlines flight 2608 for my first international assignment for The Wall Street Journal.

At the age of 16, I started to explore various areas around where I lived and quickly grew to love what I would find on explorations, whether it was through nature or abandoned structures. I shortly after began to capture the world around me, the things I see and how I see them. I wanted to share with people these beautiful places as well as I can, and through a lens was how I could shape these visions.

My mother, step father and myself were on our way to my sisters house when I had spotted it and asked if we could pull into the drive way to check it out.

The Gap by Mikael Aldo

Indonesian photographer Mikael Aldo tries to reconcile the gap between what’s real and what isn’t. He describes himself as not just a photographer but as an explorer and a story-teller. Certainly, some of his images could be ripped straight from the pages of an epic fantasy novel. He’s just 17-years-old but he has the skill and imagination of an established and sophisticated artist. He seamlessly fuses portraits with natural elements, such as waterfalls, clouds, and forests, creating a vivid and surreal creative world. Girls sleep on clouds, boys transform into trees, and headless men prance across vacant lots. It’s trippy brilliance of the highest order.
