Elävältä piirtyneet / Those Drawn Alive

” Every autumn I get heavily moody. This is caused by the loss of the light.
Last summer I heard a tune called ” the House of the Rising Sun “.
At once I was on a wintry road, with a very low light – and having an impossible opponent against me –
Lee Van Cleef .”
” There is light ,and there is darkness – and a man between. ”


I graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts, Helsinki, Finland in 1997 – sculpture as main interest. Four years of very classical approach to the art – sculpting and drawing live model mainly.I now consider that simplified method as the greatest ability to deepen one’s perception on arts of any kind.That is persistent concentration on the subject.

After school for 3-4 years I went through a drawingproject to study more improvisationary aspect of doing art. After that I fell into photographing. At the moment, photographing has emerged to a moving phase – to a intimate journey through short films.
