We have been working hard, travelling like nomads and making more than 15 short term exhibitions without permissions in public places and private properties in France, Spain, Andorra and Finland. I have been taking care of her and she has been taking care of me.
And now FINALLY!!! I’m happy to tell you that me and my daughter have been invited to have an Ghosts Watching Over Me exhibition in May 2019 at Head On Photo Festival in Sydney, Australia. ”Head On Photo Festival is Australia’s premier photography event and one of the world-leading photo festival with more than 4 million viewers/year.”
Summer is here, you are here, and even the new Kamera Magazine is here including an EIGHT PAGES ARTICLE OF ME!!! –WOW, I didn’t see this one coming. Feeling happy and honoured! 🙏❤️⭐️
Hello there! I have updated some new pictures online. These ones are from a photo series called An Island. If you want to see more of these you can find them HERE
An Island is still a work in progress and photos are basically available only here online. Even so, some of them have already found their way to private collectors. I feel happy and grateful that people are touched by my work. It has also been fantastic to get positive feedback from so many of you… By the end of this year I should be ready with An Island photo shootings so I promise: Then it’s finally time to make an exhibition of these. So stay tuned.
And hey, if you want to get one of them already before that (and before there will be gallery fees on the top of the prize) – I can make it happen 🙂
”As I became friends with the shadows, I asked them to dance with me.” Practice of Doing Nothing [Work in progress]. Photo by me – Aki-Pekka Sinikoski. Choreography by me and Karoliina Kauhanen. More details later this year…
We did a book cover for Oneiron together with graphic designer Jussi Karjalainen and dancer Karoliina Kauhanen. I’m happy that this brilliant book (Finlandia prize winner etc.) has been published with our cover also e.g. in Italy, Sweden, Bulgaria, Hungary and Romania. This one is from Norway …og den er kjempe flott. Hilser alle mine norske venner: gå ikke glipp av denne bok av Forlaget Oktober. (Easter photo by Forlaget Oktober)
Thank you Suomen Kulttuurirahasto for believing in me and supporting my art. It means so much for me. 🙏 Congratulations also to all the other granted friends and colleagues in arts and science – including the always so wonderful niinavatanen who took this photo of me and Jessica Sinikoski ❤️
Hello fellows! I just wanted to drop you photos from yesterday’s short term exhibition called Tired Bird in the Waiting Room.
We artists often try to do something that leaves a mark in the history. To make us kind of immortal. When I was little my father told me mosquitos are alive only for one day. It felt like well if they live on this planet for such a short time, why do they have to be born at all? Just to die a short moment afterwards… We just wanted you to know that there will be a sequence of exhibitions to follow with this photo series we have been working on since my daughter was four years old. These exhibitions will last for only one day or less, and we will not promote them in any way in advance. They just happen in random places without notice. Maybe you now ask what’s the purpose of such a short exhibition if no one else knows about it. But that’s your question, not ours. We already have the answer.

The name of the exhibition was We Are Just Lonely Skeletons with Golden Teeth. …There will be a sequence of exhibitions to follow with this photo series we have been working on since my daughter was four.
