Epilogue to Homeless – Poste Restante

Epilogue to Homeless – Poste Restante

Sometimes images just haunt you. Words likewise. This morning I am hauted by both of them. I can’t touch you, but your words touch me like petals from abandoned flowers blown forgotten to the wind, a laugh lived but once, given life and gentle death, gone, but held forever, as the leaves turn gold falling, […]

Swedish Brainfart

Sorry about the title. I really tried to come up with something more politically correct, but I just couldn’t. So ridiculous was the ruling of the Swedish highest court  (Högsta Förvaltningsdomstolen) last Friday. If you speak the language, take a look, it is pretty short reading. And it is really, really scary. Basically it states that […]

Homeless – Poste Restante

Certain stories just cannot be left untold.  Even if nobody assigns them, even if you cannot be sure if anybody really cares. And goes without saying, nobody pays you to do them… A former student of mine  Vilja Harala from Lahti University of Applied Sciences approached me. She was in the middle of her final thesis […]

Lightroom- ja Multimediakurssi

Nyt kesäkuun alussa pidän Lahdessa LAMK:in avoimella puolella kaksi kurssia, jotka voisivat kiinnostaa. Lightroom (2pv + ennakkotehtävä) ja multimediakerronta (5pv + harjoitustyö). Lightroom: 13-14.6 (9-16)  30€, alv 0% Multimediakerronta:9-10.6 ja 15-17.6 (9-16) 60€, alv 0% Kuten päivämääristä näkyy, kurssit menevät limittäin, eli jopa molemmille voi halutessaan osallistua, mutta kurssit ovat siis täysin erillisiä. Lightroomissa harjoittelemme ohjelman alusta […]

The new Canon 1DX mark2

The new Canon 1DX mark2

Been playing with couple of new toys lately and the most notable of these is probably the new Canon 1DX mark 2. It was introduced couple of months ago and it is not on the shelves yet, but we should be seeing it coming within couple of weeks. I had it in my hands very briefly when […]

Three Illustrators

Three Illustrators

I promised couple of weeks ago that I show some things which have been keeping me busy – and thus away from this blog – so here is another one. It is one of the most memorable assignments this year, a series of three small portraits I did for Kuvittajat RY (Finnish Illustrators). Every two years […]

End of the Road

End of the Road

The photographer  I have always looked up to immensely is Hannes Heikura. For various reasons, but I will not get into them here.  Unfortunately he is no longer with us – he died last spring, but his work lives on. The last chapter of his Helsinki trilogy “The End of the Road” is at display in […]

Why Syria is happening?

Why Syria is happening?

You cannot open TV or any media for that matter without stumbling to the the news and the grim images of the refugees from Syria. Refugees, how is EU dealing with this… this constant information overflow leaves me personally totally puzzled. Anxiety and compassion are the first words which come to mind, but I am also […]

Visual Storytelling

Visual Storytelling

I’ve been away from the screen and the keyboard for a long time. The whole of last year was definitely a turning point of some kind… ending of something which had become an essential part of my professional life (i.e. high profile sports photography)  and beginning of something else… (more about that later). And while busy trying to […]
