Ritva Kovalainen and Sanni Seppo, two Finnish photographers, have created an exhibition from their travels in Finland, Estonia, and East Karelia, a rural area bordering Russia. From an almost forgotten treasure of customs and beliefs, they present an artistic interpretation that emphasizes the spiritual connection between man and nature.

This exhibition, presented in the United States for the first time, is underpinned with myths and folklore that were once central to people’s lives. One of the most enthralling of these is the myth of the World Tree. Growing at the center of the world, and because of its mighty size, it acts as a link between earth and sky. It is also often referred to as the «tree of fate,» on whose leaves every person’s future is written.
