SHORT BIOGRAPHY

The camera obscura phenomenon - at once simple and magical- never ceases to fascinate me.
I have been working intensively with the camera obscura technique since 1996.
For me it is a method by which to survey the living environment
and mental landscapes, summoning subconscious feelings into the light of day.

Interior/Exterior (1996–) is my most extensive and long-lasting project.
With this technique I have also made the series Milavida (2012-2013), Speaking House (2004–2006)
and
Inner Landscapes (2009–2011).
Besides I have designed and constructed many different kind of three dimensional camera obscuras
with photographer Petri Nuutinen.

Carried by Light 2014 is the latest retrospective photo book of mine.
My earlier photo books Speaking Light 2006, CAMERA OBSCURA Interior/Exterior 2002 and
The Eyes of the Fingertips Are Opening 1993
are allready sold out.
In 2012 I made the book Inner Landscapes in collaboration with
Japanese ceramic atist Tomoko Kurahara and Satoko Sai.

Many public and private art collections in Finland, Germany, Sweden, Netherlands,
Italy and France include art works of mine. I have had dozens of solo exhibitions
and participated in numerous group exhibitions both in Finland and abroad.

In 2000 I received The Finnish State Award for Photography.
