"My goal as an artist is to be true to who I am, and aim to create art that will stay around for its good cause." Finnish photographer Christoffer Relander became interested in art already at an early age. When he served the Finnish Marines between 2008-2009 he fell in love with photography. Today he has become a successful young fine art photographer with work done for national as well as international clients such as Adobe, Nikon and Oxford university Press. His work has as well been published in several notable publications and websites around the globe. Christoffer is most known for his multiple exposures images between man and nature, which he does in camera while shooting with a Nikon DSLR.
