My name is Maëlick and I am a toy photographer from Belgium currently living in Northern Finland.
I use toys, mainly (but not exclusively) LEGO® Minifigures, as a way to express the feeling of Wanderlust I experience outdoors.
I started taking an interest in photography in 2014 while traveling. Working in academia as a researcher, I’ve had the opportunity to travel regularly around North America, Europe, and Japan. In parallel, my growing interest in photography led me to stumble online across toy photography. Eventually, toys became my primary photographic subject.
Originally from Belgium, my job led me to move to Oulu, Northern Finland in December 2016. I’ve always been attracted by the Nordic countries, but it’s after a trip to Bergen in July 2016 that I took the decision to move to Northern Finland. Initially, it felt like a scary jump into the unknown, but it didn’t take long before I fell in love with the Nordic outdoors and lifestyle.
Since then, I’ve been sharing the Adventures of my plastic friends around the North.
My goal with this blog is to share my love of the North, toys, travel, and photography, to hopefully inspire people.
