Reykjav - Photos of Finland's environmental artist Timo Jokela's snow installations and ice sculptures not only highlight the incredible talent of Jokela, but the beauty of the Scandinavian countryside as well.
Timo Jokela, an environmental artist, was born in Lapland, Finland in 1956. Drawn to examine how humans leave their mark on the landscape through the construction of items such as fences and cabins, he strives to find the relationship between these items and the aesthetic beauty of the environment.
Seeking inner beauty, Jokela says his starting point for any creation is natural materials like wood, snow and ice. His ability to blend the natural and man made landscape with his artistic creations are highlighted in photos of his snow installations and ice sculptures.
