Impressively serene, touching, or close to the edge–the young Finnish photography scene has many facets. A real find!
Photography is one of the most successful items of cultural export in Finland. Now, for the first time, the internationally acknowledged artists are gathered together in one extensive book accompanying an exhibition travelling around the world. The Helsinki School presents works from over thirty different artists who have been studying or teaching at TaiK, the University of Art and Design in Helsinki. The goal is to introduce a new approach to where photography is in Finland today. Based on a concept by Timothy Persons and Jorma Puranen the amply illustrated volume presents an astounding overview. Artists featured (selection): Nanna Hänninen, Ilkka Halso, Ulla Jokisalo, Aino Kannisto, Sandra Kantanen, Pertti Kekarainen, Ola Kolehmainen, Janne Lehtinen, Niko Luoma, Riitta Päiväläinen, Jyrki Parantainen, Jorma Puranen, Pentti Sammallahti, Jari Silomäki, Santeri Tuori Exhibition schedule: Kulturhuset, Stockholm, February 25-May 30, 2005 · Künstlerhaus Betanien, Berlin, September 15-October 23, 2005 · Additional venues planned
