Miia Autio is a visual artist mainly working with photography. Her works deal with the themes of otherness, identity and viewership in light of different societal issues. Often defined topics or selected groups of people open up more extensive questions and unitive motifs. In her artistic work she is interested in disclosing conceptions and power structures that photography creates.
Autio graduated as a photographer from the Lahti Institute of Design and Fine Art and the Bielefeld University of applied sciences. She is currently studying for a MFA degree at the Academy of Fine Arts at the University of the Arts in Helsinki. Her works have been seen in several solo and group shows in both Finland and abroad most recently at Fotografisk Center Copenhagen (2019), Kunst Haus Wien Vienna (2019), Hasselblad center Gothenburg (2019), Finnish Museum of Photography Helsinki (2018).
