LONG ROAD

May 4, 2019

We have been on the road together for a long time. Working hard, taking care of each other, and travelling like nomads. Today it’s time to celebrate our first larger New Ghosts exhibition taking place here in Sydney @headonphotofest (Royal Botanic Garden, located next to Sydney Opera House.) The exhibition is packed with amazing photographers from all over the world and I’m so proud we two are included. ✌️😃✌️ C U at the opening and do not miss our Artist Talk/Performance tomorrow (Saturday May 4th 12.00 pm) at Paddington Town Hall. We are looking forward seeing you in the audience.

I would like to thank everyone who has helped, encouraged, trusted and supported us, our work, and our journey during the years. Special thanks goes to Arts Promotion Centre Finland, Frame Contemporary Art Finland, and Embassy of Finland in Canberra.   🌸

RED CARPET TIME

Red Carpet Time with Astrid and Moshe Rosenzveig aka The Grand Master Flash of Head On Photo Festival. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Very often when you post photos on your webpage, blog or Instagram, the whole thing feels kind of unreal. How fantastic is it to come all the way here and actually meet people who stops you on the street just to tell you they really like the photographs we are doing together with Astrid. (THANK YOU!⭐️) So fantastic to get to know people who are touched by our art. How great does it feel to meet real people behind the virtual reality on your screen. 
We are so happy we suddenly have new friends here in Australia 🥳😃⭐️Not only computers but kangaroos and humans, too 😄😄😄🦘 And guess what, Astrid just dropped another tooth. What a night! 🦷❤️⭐️

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

MARZI x SINIKOSKI

I love every detail of this project I photographed for Marzi Nyman and Kaskelotti Records. It’s a fantastic album by Marzi but also a beautiful photo diary. So if you want to buy a photo book by me you can start with this one – and the music will be included ? Love & support by Hyyrysjussi, Graphic design is by Jussi Karjalainen, Photos & Photo Concept Design by me.

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 🙂
