Spotlight
In this issue’s Spotlight section, we bring you the story behind one of the selected collections in our Community Curation Season 03: Some Kind of Heavenly Fire, by Maria Lax.
Heavenly Fire #11, by Maria Lax
Heavenly Fire #11, by Maria Lax
Maria Lax is a London based photographer originally from Northern Finland, a region isolated and surrounded by a vast wilderness.
Some Kind of Heavenly Fire tells the story of UFO sightings that occurred in her remote home town in the 1960’s, reimagining the mysterious lights people saw at the time, whilst exploring the history of the region and that of Maria’s family.
It wasn’t until Maria read her grandfather’s book that she discovered the incredible stories of supernatural events and struggle against hardship in what is largely a barren land.
The UFO sightings coincided with a time of great struggle for Northern Finland. People flooded from the countryside to the cities in search of jobs leaving abandoned houses scattered across the landscape. The sightings embodied a fear of the future, the unknown and the inexorable shift in lifestyles and livelihoods. Some reacted to the mysterious lights with fear, others took them as a sign they were not alone.
Some Kind of Heavenly Fire was published by Setanta Books in 2020 and has been exhibited worldwide, and we are proud to announce Heavenly Fire #11 as a part of RAW’s collection.
