In her early twenties, photographer Sari Soininen regularly and excessively experimented with LSD, which eventually led to an extended psychotic episode that impacted her life in a profound way. ‘Transcendent Country of the Mind’ is a deep dive into encounters with alternative dimensions of reality and perceptions of otherworldly signs around us. Through a kaleidoscope of mesmerizing landscapes, unfamiliar portraits, and more, it tells a story of subconsciousness, about the world that resides in the back of our minds. Soininen’s colorful body of work shows our vivid surroundings in all their beauty and darkness, and embraces a journey towards the undiscovered.
