At the edge of the world

These magical photos are by dutch artist Scarlett Hooft Graafland.  She produces her work in remote locations where the inhabitants have been forced to adapt to the natural conditions, creating site-specific installations inspired by local traditions and materials.  Pretty stunning work. 

"I am filled with nostalgia for places where people are very close to nature," says Graafland. "Places where people have barely interfered with nature. The wonder of nostalgia for places you have never been to. The wonder of creating situations that have never existed before and will probably never exist again. Situations that are possible but very unlikely to occur again. Magic realism."
