EXHIBITION IN SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA

October 4, 2018

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.”

AN ISLAND – NEW PHOTOS

May 15, 2018

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 🙂

TIRED BIRD IN THE WAITING ROOM

February 2, 2018

Sinikoski & 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.

WE ARE JUST LONELY SKELETONS WITH GOLDEN TEETH

Sinikoski & Sinikoski

We artists often try to do something to leave a mark in the history. To make us kind of immortal. When I was a little boy my father told me mosquitos live only for one day. I remember thinking: well if they are on this planet for such a short time, why do they have to be born at all? Just to die a short moment later… This photo is from mine and my daughter’s first Ghosts Watching Over Me winter outdoor exhibition here in Finland. 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. These unmarked exhibitions last for only one day or less, and we won’t promote them in any way in advance. They just take place in random locations 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.

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.

SUN IS DEAD – I & II

Ghosts Watching Over Me

Midsummer couldn’t stop us to arrange two hidden exhibitions, Sun is Dead I & II. But it didn’t stop this nice dog either who visited both of them. Thanks to her and other creatures for meeting us and our photos. Our caravan will now continue to the mountains where we will have more Ghosts Watching Over Me exhibitions.

Closing time my friends! My first gallery exhibition with Last Machos is now over. Big and warm thank you to all the visitors and people who have helped me with this exhibition including friends, family members, and all my assistants – everyone who have helped me during the years. I would also like to thank Svenska Kulturfonden, Taike, Patricia Seppälän Säätiö, Jokes and Suomen Kulttuurirahasto who have funded my working during these years with Finnish Teens and Last Machos. It’s amazing to have all of you out there pushing me forward. So honestly: Thank you!

Aki-Pekka Sinikoski: Last Machos

I have been extremely happy that so many of you have seen my exhibition and many of you have even made a day trip from Helsinki to Porvoo to see my exhibition.
Today I even got a message from one of the visitors that she and her father had visited the exhibition and both of them were so touched that they couldn’t leave the exhibition with dry eyes. Another visitor told me the he had laughed hysterically there together with his dad and daughter.

…What more can I ask for?!? Strong emotional reactions with full scale. Thank you so much for all this wonderful feedback ?

Next week is the last week of my Last Machos exhibition; it will be there only until November 27th. Gallery will be open from Tuesday to Sunday. So be sure not to miss it!
