Featured Artist: Atmospheric Photography of Mikko Lagerstedt

Articles, Inspiration December 4, 2012

December is officially on and it’s time to give you our final featured artist for this year. We have brought you some of the most unique artists from the world of illustration for the past months, but this time we bring you an amazing artist in another creative field – professional photography.

Meet Mikko Lagerstedt, a professional photographer from Finland whose works are characterized by moody and surreal themes and mostly focusing on natural subjects such as landscapes, waterscapes, roads and forests. Describing his work as “atmospheric”, Mikko had been producing amazing photographs since 2008. His goal is to convey the exact feeling he felt from the moment each photograph was taken.
