The dispatch and discord of civic (and suburban) life can get to we after a while. You start to feel crowded, hemmed in by a people, a noise, a traffic, and a buildings. Sometimes we only need to get divided from it all. But that’s not always a picturesque option.
So we’re here to benefaction a sympathetic alternative: a work of Tiina Törmänen, a Finnish photographer who captures a vast, icy beauty of a Arctic tundra. There, tellurian hit is singular and a sky looms outrageous and distant.
Her shots constraint a wild, yet fragile, beauty of a region, yet also a measureless clarity of waste a place brings.
While a shots of a landscape alone are adequate to conjure a feeling of solitude, Törmänen goes a additional step by incorporating sole tellurian total into her photos.
These are self-portraits, taken with a timer, divulgence that when shooting, Törmänen herself is all alone in this pleasing yet revengeful land.
But a clarity of being alone isn’t frightening or unpleasant.
Instead, it’s pondering and awe-inspiring, and reminds us that while humans are a large force, we’re still really tiny compared to a planet.
The photos were taken in Sapmi, also famous as Lapland, a segment in a northernmost areas of Scandinavia and western Russia.
Because this segment is comparatively unpopulated, wickedness is minimal, permitting millions of stars to be visible.
Even during a day, though, a landscape is still majestic.
