WHO AM I?

I’m a Visual Artist based in Finland. My main techniques are digital photography, painting and web design technologies. I’m also a writer, but usually I write with light instead of words. I mainly work on self-driven, long-term projects.

I follow the steps of the Humanist School of Photography, trying to catch the moments of everyday life –  in cafes as well as on the streets –  life as it is, in all its brokenness, ‘everydayness’ and the beauty of the things that fill our lives. Capturing a moment or process in time, when something is being born and created, attracts me – we lose those precious moments so quickly.

Jean Claude Gautrand describes humanist photography as:

a ‘lyrical trend, warm, fervent, and responsive to the sufferings of humanity [which] began to assert itself during the 1950s in Europe, particularly in France … photographers dreamed of a world of mutual succour and compassion, encapsulated ideally in a solicitous vision

“Which of my photographs is my favorite? The one I’m going to take tomorrow.”

Working in Artist Residencies in Finland and abroad  plays an important role in my Art; I’ve made several journeys to France and Georgia. In 2014 I was the Artist-in-Residence of Sfakiotes Residency Program and worked on the mountains of Lefkada island, Ionian Islands, Greece.

In 2015 and 2016 I had a privilege to live and work in Paris at the Cité Internationale des Arts. I interacted with artists from all over the world. We shared ideas, experience, concepts and above all, our passion for art. It was really a life changing experience!
