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! 🙏❤️⭐️
What a night, what an opening!
A big thank you to Alla & Julia and rest of the crew organizing this fantastic exhibition named Pohjoinen kohtaaminen. A lot of great photographers presented, so if you are in Oulu, Finland, during 23.9-12.11.2017 make sure you visit Northern Photographic Centre.
These photos are from the photo series called Ghosts Watching Over Me. We have been working on this series together with my daughter since she was four. I think these photos are dealing with the relationship between father and daughter and our fears and dreams.
My Last Machos today in Finland’s most important newspaper’s culture pages. ❤️🙏⭐️
What a beautiful night it was full of sunshine! Thanks to all of you at yesterday’s opening party.
I also want to thank the ones who made this exhibition possible and the ones who have trusted and suported my artistic work during all these years. Huge thank you goes to Suomen kulttuurirahasto, Svenska Kulturfonden, Taiteen edistämiskeskus, Patricia Seppälän Säätiö, JOKES, and Puite.
Peace & Love, Peki
PS. Exhibition is up and running till 1.8.2017. Be sure not to miss it. Why?!? Because you will love it!!!!
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 me and my daughter’s first Ghosts Watching Over Me exhibition took place yesterday. The name of the exhibition was Dead Rainbow Studies. …and guess what, 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 will just take place in random places without notice.
Maybe you now ask what’s the purpose of such a short exhibition if no one else knows about them. But that’s your question, not ours. We already have the answer.
Are you in Helsinki tomorrow? If you want to hear about Aki-Pekka Sinikoski’s (and some of his colleagues’) thoughts about working with long documentary photo projects you are more than welcome to Helsinki Exhibition Centre on Friday afternoon (March 8, 2013). Then grab a good cup of coffee and let your feet guide you to the main stage at 1 pm. Event is arranged by Photo RAW and Musta Taide.
As usually Peki hasn’t worked only with long documentary projects but also with a hell of a lot of other interesting stuff. Sometimes in the super near future we will do the major update for KOREA‘s webpage. So beware to do some clickidi clicks with you macidi macs because new stuff we will hit here soon.
Aki-Pekka Sinikoski is doing an exclusive photo workshop together with Marko Hämäläinen. The workshop will take place in Helsinki during the night December, 8–9 2012. The workshop is organized by Photo Do. More info (in Finnish) can be found HERE.
To be more presice there will be a great selection of my photos (even some new prints) in the Encontros da Imagem. That is an international festival of photography and video curated by Rui Prata. Ooh mama, I can tell you that there is going to be a really interesting photographers in that show…
–Yep, I have to admit that I’m thrilled to be part of this one!
Yours, Aki-Pekka Sinikoski

AKI-PEKKA SINIKOSKI: FINNISH TEENS (Too Cheap For Your Mom)
The opening exhibition at Gallery Kiseleff proudly presents Finnish photographer Aki-Pekka Sinikoski. Sinikoski is known as a multi-faceted portrait photographer. He has also worked as an arranger and curator of Helsinki Biennale since 2006. His exhibition Finnish Teens (Too Cheap For Your Mom) fills the gallery with a colourful, gently humorous but sensitive photo document about the lives of Finnish teenagers.
“We fear loneliness and getting rejected by our friends. We fear we are not good enough. The danger is that you give too much of yourself and just think about how to please others.”
-Viliina Kettunen, 17 years
The opening party starts June 7th 2012 at 5 pm at Kiseleff (Aleksanterinkatu 28, Helsinki). Be sure to be there on time because at 5:30 pm Finnish French duo Eva & Manu will play a live consert as a perfect soundtrack for the Finnish Teens. Please do yourself a favor and do not miss that one.
