NEW GHOSTS – BLUE GHOSTS

New Ghosts is now Blue Ghosts. During these extra ordinary times it’s important to protect all of us. That is why our exhibition in Jyväskylä is closed and wrapped in blue at the moment. If the situations gets better in a month, we will reopen the exhibition between April 14 and April 26.

If not, we hope to see you in Helsinki at Hippolyte Gallery in October or in the Northern Photographic Centre in Oulu at the end of the year.

THANK YOU!

Thank you for the wonderful exhibition opening in Gallery Ratamo. The atmosphere was warm and beautiful and we really could feel connected to you. Thank you for all your kind words and thank you for sharing your stories and thoughts. After the opening, it was snowing and we were so happy, grateful and full of life.

Our warm greetings go also to läänintaiteilija Marko Hämäläinen who interviewed us. –You have one of the biggest hearts in the whole wide world!

For those of you who haven’t seen the New Ghosts exhibition yet, you have the chance to see it at Gallery Ratamo in Jyväskylä until 29 March. 

After Jyväskylä the following New Ghosts exhibitions in Finland will take place at

–Gallery Hippolyte in Helsinki (October 2020)
–Northern Photographic Centre in Oulu (November 2020)

More New Ghosts exhibitions outside of Finland will be published soon. See you on the road.

Stay safe. You are important!

❤️ Aki & Astrid

NEW GHOSTS – NEW EXHIBITION

The first New Ghosts exhibition in 2020 will take place 5.–29.3. at the beautiful Gallery Ratamo in Jyväskylä.

You are welcome to the opening 4 March at 5 pm. There will be a New Ghosts Artist Talk hosted by regional artist (läänintaiteilija) Marko Hämäläinen and we’ll stay in the gallery together with Astrid even after the official program, so I’m sure you’ll have a chance to chat with us if you feel like that. We have worked with these images since 2011 and YES, we are super proud of this exhibition, so it’ll be a pleasure to share it with you.

I will also have a photo workshop in Jyväskylä on 29 March so even if we don’t know too many people in Jyväskylä region – yet! – we hope that will change pretty soon.

Peace & Love, Aki & Astrid


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.

EXHIBITION IN SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA

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

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 🙂

PERFORMANCE / DANCE / PHOTOGRAPHY / INSTALLATION

”As I became friends with the shadows, I asked them to dance with me.” Practice of Doing Nothing [Work in progress]. Photo by me – Aki-Pekka Sinikoski. Choreography by me and Karoliina Kauhanen. More details later this year…

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
