We are nature

We are nature

Christoffer Relander is a Finnish artist and self-taught photographer that loves to experiment with exposure, camera movement and other effects or techniques that could give a painterly feel to an image.

"In 2010 I began my journey experimenting with multiple exposure photography", he says. "During the years I have asked myself sometimes, am I limiting my imagination when sticking to this simple technique? Now, I am releasing my first personal project that was not created/blended in-camera. I decided however to bring inspiration from both the multiple exposure film algorithms (negative film) and some basic darkroom techniques. All portraits and botanic textures are shot in the south of Finland during the first frost."

Relander also states he wouldn't have finished his project, "if it was not for the global situation caused by the Coronavirus."
