Aki-Pekka Sinikoski, Archipelago, Åland

Hi friends! 2015 is here and I have started it as I finished the last year –with good work flow and plenty of super interesting projects. I’m pretty damn sure that 2015 will be a REALLY GOOD ONE. Last week I spent on the outer archipelago of Åland taking photos for my forthcoming series called An Island. More teasers from that one soon.

Peace & Love, Peki

AKI-PEKKA SINIKOSKI: FINNISH TEENS (Too Cheap For Your Mom) 
07/06-29/06/12

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.
