Mikko Lagerstedt is a self-taught fine art photographer from Finland. The inspiration for his work first came to him when he was driving on a summer’s eve after a rainy day, the sun was shining, and the fog was rising in the fields. He was so enchanted by the atmosphere that he decided to capture more of these moments in his photographs. "I love to capture night, and atmospheric photography and I enjoy capturing simplistic landscapes. "
The collection "Night Animals " is a brilliant combination of two separate photographs taken by him- one of an animal and the other of an extra-ordinary atmospheric background, both captured by the photographer himself. The end result is magical where the animals are seen wandering the streets in the silence of the night. His work has been featured on BBC, The Telegraph, Daily Mail and Nikon. You can find prints of his photographs here.
