At first glance the photographer Santeri Tuori’s pictorial world appears to be timeless. On second glance, however, it becomes clear what is going on. Tuori’s compositions of trees, tangled branches, and clouds are sophisticated montages made up of countless photos arranged sideby-side or on top of each other. This results in nearly abstract, fascinatingly complex images of nature; because it harmonizes with the sublime depiction of nature, the process of seeing transcends itself. The eye is no longer guided toward a vanishing point around which the image is organized. Instead, viewers luxuriate in an inexhaustible wealth of perspectives that allow them to continue to discover new phenomena. This goes along with the dramaturgy that stages the publication from one page to the next. At the beginning, you look up into the treetops. These are followed by pictures of clouds set at eye level. The final chord consists of a series of photographs that looks back to the abstract entanglement of the treetops. In every respect this is an uplifting illustrated volume.

​With his precise eye for peerless photography montages, SANTERI TUORI (*1970, Espoo, Finland) is one of the best-known figures from the Helsinki School. He studied at the University of the Arts in Berlin, as well as at Aalto University in Helsinki. His works are found in prominent exhibitions and collections around the world.
