Photography of Jari Johnsson

An amateur photographer has braved broken bones during the darkest nights in his lone quest to capture the ultimate night selfie. Looking like a mad scientist from a sci-fi movie, photography-enthusiast Jari “Swampman” Johnsson braved wild bears and wolves and even continued snapping despite having sustained two broken ribs after a fall in the dark.

Armed with just a hatchet for protection, it was all worth it in the end for Jari as the eerie yet spectacularly star-lit pictures, which can be viewed below, show. Jari travelled to the marshland of southern Finland to realise his vision. Each picture took up to thirty minutes to set up with the “Starlight Aurora” being crowned the ultimate.
