Sandra Kantanen (born 1974, Helsinki, Finland) trained both at the Helsinki School of Photography and the Central Academy of Art in Beijing. She says:  'I studied Chinese landscape painting and became obsessed with the idea of trying to understand their way of looking at nature. As I found most of the holy mountains they had been depicting for thousands of years were almost destroyed by pollution or otherwise turned into tourist spots, it became for me a search for a landscape that doesn’t really exist, an idealised picture'.
