As we are approaching the end of the year, I would like to share some upcoming group exhibition dates for the spring of 2024 in which I'll be participating.

In other (people's) news! Two black and white photos from my collaboration with Teatteri Sirkus Suosalo were shown on Finland's YLE TV 1 Independence Day Special. Watch Mr. Suosalo's interview via the link below and you'll spot my work there as well. What an honour! Below you'll also find a link to the Helsingin Uutiset website, as our studio was mentioned in one of their articles about the Hakaniemi Market Hall. 
Toisissa uutisissa; viime kesänä kuvailin Martti Suosalon upeaa projektia Teatteri Sirkus Suosaloa ja kaksi näistä ottamistani kuvista oli myös esillä herra Suosalon haastattelun yhteydessä YLE TV 1:n Itsenäisyyspäivän ohjelmistossa. Katso haastattelu alla olevan linkin kautta ja näet myös ottamani mustavalkokuvat sen yhteydessä. Mikä kunnia! Tämän lisäksi alla linkki myös Helsingin Uutisiin, sillä studiomme mainittiin myös Hakaniemen kauppahallia käsittelevässä artikkelissa.

Lucifer (2019) - Hasselblad 500 C/M, Ilford Pan F 50, Kodak Tri-X
Looking at some of my past work, this is the triptych I always gravitate back to.
When I was working on my thesis project, I wanted to create a series of portraits based on Dante Alighieri's poem, The Divine Comedy. Many are familiar with Dante's writings of Inferno and the beast that lies on the very bottom of the 9th circle of hell. Rather than focusing on the grotesque, I wanted to to approach the idea of Lucifer through the mental struggle that comes with eternal isolation.

New camera options available for photo shoots:
I was very lucky to find a real gem of a camera at a thrift store. This Goltz & Breutmann Mentor Atelier camera (circa 1930's) had been used in a studio back in the day. After some care and cleaning, it is ready for portrait work again!
