Photographer Mikko Lagerstedt is a relative newcomer to photography, having taken it up a mere six years ago in 2008.

Lagerstedt has taken dozens of images in his surreal style of the spectacular geography he calls home. This latest body of work is a reprise of his much viewed Edge, which was an eerily lovely collection of photographs.
