Spectacular Aurora Borealis Self-portraits By Tiina Tormanen

Between 2014 and 2017, Finnish photographer Tiina Törmänen has shot a series of breathtaking self-portraits showing her silhouette dwarfed by a backdrop of stars and the Northern Lights. The portraits were all captured in the Arctic Lapland wilderness of northern Finland, a huge region of the country where there is only an average of 2 people every square kilometer. ‘Cold vast emptiness but something so beautiful’, she says in the project’s description, ‘I was so impressed with the loneliness, the air and the silence. Out there you feel so small because there is only cold and ice’.
