The Finnish photographer Paivi Vikstrom focuses on animals and nature shots as well as stills. In her images she leaves plenty of room for the unique lighting conditions in Scandinavia, that change with the seasons in a very characteristic way. Paivi Vikstrom plays with the influence of light on moods and colours in her photos. Especially in the so-called "Nightless Nights", the Finnish nights without sunset, she creates fantastic outdoor shots. Naturalness and romantic lighting scenes characterise her portfolio.
