Kollectice: Preview 5

Our group show exhibition opened up yesterday. Opening was held thursday night at the museum. The exhibition lasts a month, until 30th of April. The place is the Project Space of Finnish Museum of Photography.  Two links from the event: Museum of Photography  and HpB . Kollective is a group of eight different kind of young and talented photographer artists: Ville Andersson, Jonna Kina, myself, Aleksi Linnamaa, Jarkko Räsänen, Laura Paavilainen,  Saku Soukka and Filippo Zambon. The exhibition forms an interesting dialogue with the photos and the photos speak of urban culture in their own unique way. A few examples:

I love the exhibition space and I think it is the best exhibition of Kollective so far.

bubbling (under)

Lately I've been getting inspiration to working from some surprising places. I have a feeling now I want to 
work with movement and the place it does or doesn't belong to. It's a vague idea that I'm planning to go into.. How movement can be transformed.  I've been doing a lot of dancing, mostly capoeira, also a little bit of hiphop and reggaeton.. These guys belong to my old capoeira group, they are awesome. 

Lately I'm so busy I haven't had time for blogging. Hopefully it will change at some point. Upcoming next week are two exhibitions in Helsinki. So great! 
ps. Open Capoeira Roda at Kallion ala-aste on friday from 18h00 to 21h00!

Tarkovskyn polaroidit / Las Polaroid de Tarkovsky

I found these while browsing the internet, and it was just too good to pass. 

"Tarkovsky, whose films often seem to be composed as a montage of still photos, in a period effectively took photos with a Polaroid camera. These photos, taken at home and in Italy, in spite of all their technical imperfections bear witness to the same way of seeing and visual world as the great films."  from here 

More digital versions hereenjoy the bright light and great images. 

By the way, I will graduate tomorrow as Master of Fine Arts (if they accept my final thesis) so keep your fingers crossed.
