Photographs from the Edge of the World

Mikko Lagerstedt is a self-taught photographer based-in Finland who only started shooting back in December 2008. Since then, he has captured a number of hauntingly beautiful landscape photographs showing both stars and self-portrait silhouettes hovering over the horizon line. His latest project is simply titled “Edge”, and features “atmospheric photography” of the Finnish landscape.

Lagerstedt writes,

I’m a graphic designer and self-taught photographer from Finland […] There is so much to photography. You can always learn something new about it. The complexity of photography is very intriguing. I want to send the picture viewer a feeling of what I felt at the time I took the picture. It’s the most important thing in my photos.

You can find more of Lagerstedt’s photography over on his blog, his Flickr account, and his Facebook page.
