Laura Konttinen (b. 1987 in Säynätsalo) is a Finnish photographer who combines photography with collage and installation. The core focus of her work is the materiality of the photograph, and its connection to nostalgia. Cutting, pasting and crafting by hand is an integral part of Konttinen's work. Instead of digital aftereffects, she often plays analogue tricks on the camera through surreal scenesetting and carefully considered arrangements.
Konttinen's works have been shown in various group and solo exhibitions in Finland. Currently she is studying at Aalto University's MA Photography programme.
