Welcome to my website!
As a photographer I am mostly interested in people, places and details. My love for old Finninsh b&w movies, Italian neorealism and Akira Kurosawa's and Sergei Eisenstein's production partly explain why I photograph as I do. And if you don't understand Daido Moriyama or Junichiro Tanizaki you don't know me. I welcome your comments. Enjoy.
The picture on the right shows me standing amongst some laundry ladies in 1959. My mother is supposed to stand on the left. They say I hated that blue velvet outfit so much from the beginning I took it off on our traditional Midsummer Day Cruise and threw it overboard.
I'm a dad with a wife and one lovely daughter. I was born and raised in Finland. Despite my travels I could give you 100 reasons why Finland is The Most Kick-Ass-Country in the world.
"Striving for excellence motivates you; striving for perfection is demoralizing". Harriet Braiker, American psychologist and writer. As a Teacher of the Deaf and Special Education Teacher I couldn't agree more.
