Maria Lax is a London based photographer originally from a small town in Northern Finland. She is known for her use of colour and experimental camera techniques.
Since restrictions were lifted last year, Maria has wasted no time and has quickly raced back out into the harsh conditions of her native Finland. Enduring the extreme cold of the remote areas of Northern Finland, Maria has been exploring a forest of giant trees slumbering beneath a thick blanket of snow. A naturally occurring phenomena in the Arctic Circle where trees are caked with heavy snow that makes them look like cotton candy, she has filled the landscape by her signature use of colour and long exposures. Inspired by ‘revontulet’ or ‘fox fires’ which is the term for Northern Lights in Finland, the results have been these psychedelic landscapes. This series is ongoing so please keep an eye out for new releases over time.
