VIDEOS

MATKA HILJAISUUTEEN

Matka hiljaisuuteen introduces videos that have been filmed in different seasons in Finland’s most beautiful landscapes, Oulanka National Park, Pallas-Yllästunturi National Park, Linnansaari National Park, the Bothnian Bay and its white city, Oulu. There are thousands of hours of Full HD video filmed and they are background material for future productions.

The clips represent videos taken in many shooting situations, locations, light, and seasons. Each clip is shortened to a 5 to 15 second pattern and represents the basic material of the theme described, which can be used to compose various nature presentations, including for social media use. There may also be a man in the wild (not advertisement) who was at the scene.

Light in the wilderness

The light in the wilderness is a photo book about the nature of Kuusamo. The heart of the Kitkajoki River is a valuable part of the Oulanka National Park in Kuusamo. Several works of art have been published in Kuusamo, only one of which mainly describes the River Kitkajoki. It is Light in the Wilderness – a work by Tauno Kohonen.

The work has been selected as one of the most beautiful books of 1993. The photo book includes a poetic story of the variation in seasons and times of the day in eight languages (Finnish, Swedish, English, German, French, Spanish, Arabic and Japanese).
