Helsinki School – Photographers

I came across the artists list of the helsinki school of art & design. A few of the series had parallels with the work I am doing now.


Series: Sacred Bird
Looking at human’s desire to fly, showing it in almost a humorous and silly light. Referring back to the centuries of attempts to fly from myths to scientific experiments. The way he uses the landscape or waterscape to his advantagement interests me. Plus the colours and pace of the images are so subtly put together.


I find little descriptions written about this series saana has created. I felt a similar theme to my work though. The idea of making the exposure of people theatrical and unreal. Like a nervous laugh when something serious is about to say, so people are never sure whether you’re joking or not. I can see they’re all masked but I feel it’s more than that, like falling on stereotypes, on the mix between the sexes, age… etc
