The charm of nature in Finland, deep and luminescent, has given rise to a long-standing project that has led me to travel there many times. You would think that lakes are all the same, regardless of what country they’re in, wouldn’t you? But just the way the light of the long northern summer night reflected on the surface of the water made me press the shutter button. The wake of a boat took away the mirror-like scene I wanted to behold. It’s as if the landscape in front of me is a tableau trapped in a vacuum pack. It’s always there, but when there’s a breeze it gets erased and takes on an otherworldly quality. Miho Kakuto (Photographer)

Miho Kakuta – Profile Born in Suzuka, Mie Prefecture, Japan. Trained under photographer Motoyuki Kobayashi. Published in a wide range of books, magazines and advertisements. Her photos have been used on numerous CD covers and products. “Collections of photographs don’t get opened but a couple of times a year. Photos on magazines and products get seen every day so people can really feel their impact,” she writes in NOTEBOOK, a publication she started (current issue is No. 5). Kobayashi has contributed to a significant shift in reducing the distance between art and products for daily living.
