Photographer's Note

While looking for long lost members of my wife's family, we stumbled upon a very old and disused cemetery, hidden in the woods in the commune of Parikkala in the south Carelia province in eastern Finland.
This hidden and tranquil place is the most charming and romantic resting place beneath the old pine and birch trees. Many of the graves where in reasonable good shape, others where completely overgrown with fallen crosses or headstones. It radiates a calm and soothing mood.
And we did find some distant family members there, while more lie in the village of Tyriä just across the russian border
