NEWSWEEK JAPAN by Q SAKAMAKI

April 8, 2019

I have something extraordinary for all my Japanese friends and followers out there. The wonderful Q Sakamaki ( @qsakamaki ) interviewed me for his highly ranked photo blog in the Japanese version of Newsweek magazine. Thank you so much Q 🙏Arigato 🌸 

For all my non-Japanese-speaking friends: When looking at 🧐🤔🤔the article with all those cool characters, you might have a feeling of being ”lost in translation”, but don’t worry, I can assure you every single word from me are truly the words of wisdom and I sound like a nobel hearted genious. (And all my Japanese followers actually understanding the text, please don’t break the illusion 😂😂😂)

🇫🇮🇯🇵

One of my biggest dream is to have an exhibition in Japan. So if there is anyone out there who can help me with this dream, please give me a shout. You can find my website address in my bio. 

平静& 愛情, Aki Sinikoski

Peace & Love, Aki Sinikoski

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 🙂

ONEIRON GOES ITALY, SWEDEN, BULGARIA HUNGARY, ROMANIA …AND NORWAY

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)
Klem, Peki

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

February 1, 2018

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.
