About Janne Korkko
Photography means more to me than just doing it: it is as important as breathing and living. Image has always been an important form of narrative but I want it to show the touch of life and humanity that define my ideas. I strive to make socially important and difficult topics approachable.
My work has also enjoyed professional acclaim, for example one of my main projects, The Effect of ebola in Money state guys community, was chosen to be included in The European photography 100 book in 2016. For this, I am proud and grateful. Things that have touched me, have touched others, too. Root and the emotions of emptiness brought to it make people act or bother. I've got to work.
I have been working abroad for long periods of time, making such demanding projects in crisis areas. I have received more than one project to photograph the New York Times, LES JOURS Magazine, Suomen Kuvalehti.
