The Nature of Being is the sixth volume from the series of books about the Helsinki School. It concentrates on bringing together the various approaches used by the School’s representatives to conceptualise nature visibly. The stated goal is not to limit oneself to purely physical depictions of animals, plants, and landscapes. Nature ought to be expressed through a different type of unit and with a new way of gauging time. Days, months, and seasons become the points of crystallisation for time. Thus, the photographs reflect a Nordic sense about feelings of loneliness, jealousy, or desire. The works provide photographic insight into the complex horizon of emotions that characterise our individual views of nature. They do not portray landscape as such, but the world in which we live.
