All papers and wood-based materials are made in Germany and sourced from Forestry Stewardship Council-certified sustainable sources(FSC®-certified).

Prints are made with museum-quality Giclée printing (specialised high-resolution inkjet printer), presented on acid-free 308 gsm Hahnemühle Photorag art paper, with guaranteed 100+ years of archival life. Hahnemühle is the world’s oldest mill, producing fine-art papers for 500+ years.
The super matt finish of Hahnemüle Photorag makes it one of the most popular papers amongst artists, illustrators & photographers alike. The paper gives muted blacks with even colour reproduction and excellent detail. The surface has minimal texture with a chalky smooth cotton feel which creates smooth colour gradients. It has a delicate surface, so it's recommended to have extra care when handling.

1.1 Sade & Viivi for The Forest Project | June 18, 2015 | Parikkala, Finland

“As time goes by, the status of the forests has been changing with the rise of industrialisation and urbanisation, but the connection between the Finnish people and the forest remains. For the Finns, the forest once symbolised something spiritual and holy. Nature gods and spirits were worshipped in the sunlit groves, and dark and gloomy spruce forests were avoided since they were considered the realms of goblins and trolls. The lives of the Nordic people were not directed by a calendar but by the harvest season of berries and mushrooms and the yearly migration routes of the animals. The forest used to be our ruler.”

In June 2015, I collaborated with Finnish circus artists Sade Kamppila and Viivi Roiha to create images to help form what would later become a contemporary circus show travelling around Finland and Europe. The show was called METSÄ (‘Forest’ in Finnish). We stayed in an isolated forest cottage in lower east Finland for three days beside the Russian border. It overlooked a beautiful lake, one of nearly 200k lakes the country offers. We didn’t have a shower or running water. But we did have a wood-burning sauna, fireplace, the world’s largest population of human-eating mosquitos, nearly 24hr sunlight, great food by fantastic cooks Sade & Viivi and loads of inspiration from nature and THE FOREST. At each day’s end, we spent some time in the sauna. When we’d get too hot, we’d exit the sauna and jump into the frozen lake. After a few seconds in the frozen lake, your body can resist the outside cold (Finnish summer). You’d sit naked on the deck for 5 minutes while being rained on. It was a beautiful experience, feeling one with nature.

We created a total of 30 images, and this was the last. It was made right after our ending sauna session. Sade’s on the left, Viivi on the right.
