photomontage.

I had never thought that photomontage could have been so much fun! you might argue that there are better ways to spend my free time - but when it is -10°C you cannot stay outside for too long even if the sun is shining. that is why I would like to share here my first attempt at photomontage which resulted into a series of totally absurd landscape photographs.
experimenting with photomontage:



8 of my favourite photomontages.
these photomontages are the result of the encounter between my photographs from Lapland and my collection of Finnish old photographs. they might make little sense at first glance - but all you need is a closer look to find the right connection.
P.S. I feel like making more: I really like how these turned out!
