Sylt, Kampen, Northfriesland 165 x 110 cm

Natalia Mikkola explores exotic places with her camera – the barren explosive Icelandic landscapes, Victoria Falls in Zimbawe and South Africa with it’s magnificent wildlife. Natalia does not merely document. She paints, and her camera lens is her brush. In Karelia, misty gray monochrome landscapes blur the boundaries between reality and imagination, shimmering softly in a countless number of shades. Fateful and melancholy, never sad nor frightening, suggestive and captivating. From quite different areas of the world – London and Milan – come her series “Images and Identity”. In “Sylt” from Nordfriesland, a graphic landscape slowly evolves right before your eyes. Natalia varnishes her works with a magical sense of the sensual and mythical.

Photographer Natalia Mikkola grew up on the Crimean peninsula in the Ukraine, where weekend excursions with her grandmother, an avid art expert, along with a multitude of visits to Vorontsov Palace, the summer residence and park of the royal family, laid the groundwork for where she is today. Shortly after her arrival to Åland 20 years ago, Natalia studied fine art at Ålands Folkhögskola where she was free to experiment within various media. Before finding her own photographic expression she filled her days with studies in the field of economics – business administration and logistics – while also finding the time to study maritime and transport law. Natalia’s general studies in fine art sowed a seed that could not be prevented from germinating, neither by mercantile skills nor family duties. Mikkola returned therefore in 2011 to Ålands Folkhögskola to study nature photography.
