Mikko Lagerstedt is a designer and photographer from Finland, who portrays his mystical touch in each of his photographs, which appears to capture dark and very deep emotions. The light used is very dark bringing a melancholy tone, in addition to digitally manipulate his photos to darken even more. Nature definitely has a role in the sets of his shots, but sometimes we find some subject in minimum size or distance away, perhaps to not downplay the nature. Most likely his nationality causes him to do this kind of work, one has to remember that in the Nordic area light is so scarce that feelings are influenced.
