In this project, photography is not really something with which I examine the world around me. It is the instrument I use to examine the world inside. By exposing my film multiple times I am able to surreally fill jars with natural environments. I get to play with the childish idea of conserving my surroundings as they are today. Including some environments from my childhood in the South of Finland, that I am trying to release my longing for.The executing of the concept is done by using a double exposure technique inspired from the film epoch. This to help preserve the beauty in analog alteration, as I am conserving my precious landscapes.

I was born in Finland December 1986 and grew up on the countryside of Ekenäs. My interest in art started at an early age, but it was not until I served the Finnish Marines between 2008-2009 that I fell in love with photography.
