Introduction
Annika Ruohonen is a fine art photographer, currently based in Finland. Environmental issues are very important to her and that she aims to convey with her art as well. Annika has taken pictures for over twenty years and for a long time she used a film camera. Annika enjoys wandering in the wilderness where she wants to capture beauty but with her work she also tries to make people see ordinary things in a different way. Out in the nature she looks for the perfect light and the perfect angle to convey a unique story or a feeling in that moment. Observing life in all its beauty and imperfections through the lens of her camera is her paradise.

Wind had swept snow onto the porch. I grabbed the broom and cleared it so that it wouldn’t stick on the boards under my feet. The snow was light and pure like it always is when the temperatur…

When snow falls, it’s unbelievably silent, like sitting in a room full of cotton balls. Even though there are many kinds of snowfall, it never makes a sound. When there is sound, snow has tur…
