Maëlick in the North

Toy Photography in Northern Finland, Sweden and Norway


My name is Maëlick, and I am a visual artist from Belgium currently living in Northern Sweden.

I use toys and photography, as a way to express the feeling of Wanderlust I experience in the outdoors.

I am a member of Stuck in Plastic and have been featured as a guest author of Toy Photographers.

I started taking an interest in photography in 2014 while traveling around North America, Europe, and Japan, as part of my (non-photography) job. In parallel, my growing interest in photography led me to stumble online across toy photography. Eventually, toys became my primary photographic subject.

I’ve always been attracted by the Nordic countries, but it was after a trip to Bergen in July 2016 that I decided to move to Northern Finland in December of the same year. 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, and hopefully inspire people.
