Some call it paradise
The Finnish Archipelago Sea in the Baltic comprises of 22,483 islands, making it together with the Aland Archipelago the world's largest. This chain of islands has also been called globally the most beautiful archipelago, which the Ice Age and land upheaval have shaped into its present form. I documented the changing landscapes and lifestyles on one of these islands, my birth island of Aasla. As people in the archipelago have lived on nature's terms, the livelihood during past centuries has been earned from fishing, agriculture and cattle raising. In search for peace and quiet, new entrepreneurs have settled on this 16 sq. km island, and therefore the human population is rising again after a lengthy period of decline.
