The House in the Woods

£ 35


Award-winning photographer Kai Fagerström records the last visitors to this deserted house through atmospheric photographs, punctuated with charming prose by Heikki Williamo and Risto Rasa.

To the untrained eye, the photographs depict deserted rooms in decay. The roof is riddled with holes, the walls are crumbling. But, looking closer, we catch glimpses of new inhabitants, and they are not human...

This stunning collection of photographs captures nature from a fly-on-the-wall viewpoint, the result of many nights spent patiently observing the house, its visitors and inhabitants.

With a selection of these photographs, Fagerström was specially commended in the photojournalism category of the 2010 Veolia Environnement Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition.
