I´m a photographer from Helsinki, Finland. My focus is on both documentary and portrait photography.
My documentary photographs portray moments from people's everyday lives. The authentic, ordinary surroundings are for me to capture that something that is unique, honest, weird or has been forgotten.
The continuous evolution of the human habitat is addressed in my photographs through both the past and the present. My current projects focus on Finland, and the cultural transformation other countries more at east are going through, and the societal effects this change is having upon them.
While my vision can be both still or in motion, I am generally inspired by the story or the message of an image. For me, photography is at times complex and mysterious, a method of understanding myself and the human condition. Though mostly it is just about something intriguing and important on a personal level. I enjoy the process that is made of reflection, dedication and waiting for the unknown to emerge.
