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.”
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)
Thank you Suomen Kulttuurirahasto for believing in me and supporting my art. It means so much for me. ? Congratulations also to all the other granted friends and colleagues in arts and science – including the always so wonderful niinavatanen who took this photo of me and Jessica 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.
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!
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!
Another great review about my Last Machos exhibition.
THIS IS IT! One of the most lunatic productions I have ever done! I’m so so so proud of this video. I hope you love it as much as I do!

PS. So much good stuff on its way right now. Even more new and brilliant stuff with WÖYH! is going to be released soon when Dwzyrek will be out on April 17th as a gigantic special edition book/album full of my photos. So beware as this epic saga continues in the album art work as well.
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
