New Landscape Photography: A Thousand Little Suns
Photography by: Martina Lindqvist
A Thousand Little Suns is a series of landscape photographs by Swedish-Finnish artist Martina Lindqvist. Landscape photography, though often lovely, is rarely very exciting, but Lindqvist has produced a number of twilight landscapes of ethereal beauty. A Thousand Little Suns offers a contemplative look at the northern landscapes of Ostrobothnia in central Finland, which during the autumn and winter months should be shrouded by an impenetrable darkness. However, in this instance the landscapes find themselves lit by a thousand glowing lights.
The lights in these landscapes are neither natural nor intentional, but rather a by-product of a number of industrial sized greenhouses scattered around the area. The glowing lights smooth grey luminescent skies into superficial, dreamy backdrops that gently involve the viewer in landscapes of brooding pathetic fallacy and solitary introspection.
