I was born in London, and spent many a summer holiday in the forests of my mother’s native Finland as I grew up. I love not to travel, but to experience; I have therefore spent considerable amounts of time in places like Tibet, China, Japan, India and the US.
I was not ‘always into photography’, but was a very eager artist as a child. As I’ve become older and more impatient, photography has become an excellent means with which to express my creative side.
I like to capture dramatic black and white images one day, and vibrant colourful scenes the next. I want to draw the viewer into the scene, to affect and inspire that person to see the beauty within ugliness, and the ugliness within beauty. I like to work with concepts of new and old, life and death, duality and emptiness.
I currently live in London, where I am studying an MA in Photojournalism & Documentary Photography at the London College of Communication, UAL.
