They say that he came there for many months, one also says that his attitude had progressively transformed.
In the beginning he spoke to the inhabitants, he always had a kind word for the children of the village. However he slowly became more reticent as he began to focus on his prints, his camera, his images, and the forest.
As some approached him, theyd see his eyes fulldilated with a strange intoxication.
Yet one dayit would disappear.
Others would say of the few moments before the immense cold forest engulfed him that he was just going about his regular walks on the main road during the early morning hours.
There would be no word of him thereafter, as if he had disappeared into the middle of the lake.
The ice had broken releasing him from bondage of this country.
I believe one calls that the syndrome of Vatanen.
