Kirsi says:

This photo was taken in Finland. In preparation for the summer season, a crowd of birch trees sets off from deep in the forest to assume their seasonal postings throughout the Finnish landscape. Simplicity and tranquility create a Zen-like mood.

I converted this image to black and white to emphasize the texture. The absence of color allows concentrating on lines and forms without any distracting elements.

About Kirsi:

Finland

I graduated as a photographer with my degree of Finnish vocational qualification in nature photography from Axxell in 2015. My final project portfolio consisted of an exhibition of Nordic landscapes.

I have received recognition in both national and international photo contests such as Nature Photo of the Year/Finland, Kuusamo Nature Photo, GDT European Wildlife Photographer of the Year, MontPhoto, The Golden Porpoise, Magical Nature, Fine Art Photography Awards, Monochrome Photography Awards, Monovisions Photography Awards and the Nordic Nature Photo Contest.

In 2015, I was approached by Docendo publications to write a book, ”the Magical Landscapes of the Nordic Countries”. It was published in 2017. I have invested a considerable amount of time and effort for my exhibitions and the book, travelling to all the Nordic countires: Finland, Sweden, Norway, Iceland, Denmark including Greenland and the Faroe Islands. These photography trips have involved careful planning and developing in-depth familiarity with the various photography locations. My absolute favourite location is the Varanger peninsula where I have travelled extensively in various seasons and where I organize landscape photography workshops.

I have developed my visual ability and found my own photographic style while working with the different visual elements: form, colour, movement and lines. In my dreamlike landscape images, I try to focus on nature’s fascinating forms. Creative association plays a large role in my photography and when an image manages to portray a story, I feel it becomes even more powerful.
