CURRENT WORK:

                                                            

Working as photographer, photographic artist, graphic designer, book designer since 2000.

Set up www.image-ark.com on-line picture library in 2002. 

 

Weekly columnist for 3 Finnish newspapers since 2000 publishing more than 300 columns (Karjalaan Maa, Aamuposti, Kainuun Sanomat)

Lifestyle contributor to 6 Degrees, Finland’s english newspaper.

 

My journalistic photographic work is essentially about people and how they interact with their environment.

 

In 2003 came top 20 of all the participating photographers in the International Travel Photographer of the Year  www.TPOTY.com competition in which more than 10 000 entries from 34 countries were submitted. In 2004 I came in the top 10 in the category Living Planet, one of my images has been selected for publication in Journey One - Travel Photographer of the Year book.

 

Recent works include digitally manipulated photographs for giclée printing. Subjects include walls in which the subject is removed from its original environment and elements expanded to suggest feelings of scale, colour and mood usually with subjects that are marked with age.  Other works explore abstract themes derrived from combinations of photographic images where diverse subjects are combined to create painterly abstract landscapes and compositions.
