Emilia Moisio from 'Vieraalla maalla (In a Foreign Place)', Finland, 2013

Stunningly beautiful are the remote landscapes by Emilia Moisio. She documents traditional Finish people living far away from civilization. The difference in dimension between the people and the gigantic nature that surrounds them make the photographs stunning and slightly surrealistic. In this image a man is melting ice for water, by heating it. The comparison with the painter Jan Steen and his winter landscapes is unavoidable.
