Spirits of the Forest: 25 Striking Portraits of Wild Animals

No one will argue that man and nature are closely interconnected. However, many are mistaken, believing that this world is ruled by man, and animals are just a part of his reality. Finnish photographer Konsta Punkka discovered long ago that wild animals live with us on the same territory and harmoniously “fit” into the urban environment. The only question arises: whose territory is this, and who is the king here?

Konsta Punkka is a wildlife photographer from Finland. Konsta began his career at the age of 17, when his passion for photography grew into a permanent job. Punka spent all his summer vacations in central Finland in search of beautiful shots. Later, this journey prompted him to travel around the world to capture intimate moments from the life of various animals and birds. But the north is still Konsta’s main source of inspiration. And with some families of wild foxes, he “knows” for many years.

“What inspires me the most about photography is that people live their busy lives in cities, and yet they have no idea that they can share the same area with a family of foxes, owls and squirrels. … This makes me go out every day to show people the perspective of the world through the eyes of a fox, ”says the photographer.

IPhone and Nikon photography equipment help Konsté’s creative ideas come true. And his clients are: National Geographic, Greenpeace, ICOS, Sony, Nokiamobile, Nikon, SanDisk, Volvo, Adobe, Olympus, Icelandair, 66North, Yleisradio, Visit Switzerland, Visit Canary Islands.
