there’s a patch of burned forest on a hill top in the north of Helsinki. the hill is called, believe it or not, Fairy/Sprite Mountain (Haltiavuori). that little patch of forest is charred and ashen, the trees black, brown and white from the fire – stripped of their green foliage. Kaisa and i went there early in the evening last week, and the sun was just about to set, and it was spooky and strange and gorgeous. somehow these pictures came about, inspired by all that raw nature; dark wood sprites on Fairy Mountain. enjoy!
