Artist thoughts: "The Finnish forest on a sunny, freezing cold, clear day is a breathtaking experience. Walking in this kind of sights is a healing experience.
Around 75 per cent of Finland's total land area is covered in forest. Did you know that Finland has a law called the freedom to roam, or "everyman's right"? It means the right for anyone to access publicly or privately owned land, forests, lakes, and rivers for recreation and exercise. The right is sometimes called the right of public access to the wilderness. I wish we never give it up for any money."
