Adventure as everyday life.
Konsta Punkka is a wildlife, nature and adventure photographer from Helsinki, Finland. His passion calls for discipline, calm and perseverance. He often spends weeks in the forests of his home country and his latest adventure took him with the G-Class to eastern Finland – a journey along gravel tracks, through bogs and national parks, past crystal clear lakes to the Wild Taiga. Constantly in search of new off-road photo-ops and wild encounters.
The Wild Taiga is an endless forest of unspoilt nature. What do you find so fascinating about this place?
I know the east of Finland really well now. It’s sheer wilderness, made up of ancient coniferous forests, crystal clear lakes and rivers. You find very few people out here, but a unique abundance of wildlife. I’m overcome by those moments when I’m just sitting there, full of humility, and am simply grateful that I’m able to finance my life like this. I hope I never lose sight of the beauty of this landscape. That’s why I try to tell myself as often as I can that my everyday existence is an adventure. Sometimes, I spend weeks immersed in the nature of my home country, and every time I get an even closer insight into the animals around me. I see the same ones again and again, watch their behaviour and, in the end, am always able to tell a story about them.
