About

Why Melancholic Photos?

Melancholy comes from inside me. I guess I have always been a bit melancholic, but the darkest of times in my life have been my heroin addiction and 5 years of abusive relationship. After those I suffered over 10 years of severe depression and all I have experienced in my past reflects in my photography.

Miksi melankoliaa ja valoisia kuvia?

Melankolisuus tulee sisältäni. Olen varmaan aina ollut jokseenkin melankolinen, mutta synkimmät ajat elämässäni oli, kun olin heroiiniaddikti ja, kun elin 5 vuotta väkivaltaisessa parisuhteessa. Näiden jälkeen sairastin yli 10 vuotta vakavaa masennusta ja kaikki kokemani heijastuu tottakai kuviini.

Who am I?

A self taught photographer born 25.3.1976 in Turku  now living and working as an entrepreneur in an island called Isoluoto near Salo Finland.

I have been invited to joint exhibitions all the way to Switzerland and London and my photos has been presented in an American rap artist’s (Struggle, the grandson of country star Waylon Jennings) blog several times.

I love taking photos of abandoned things and places and I also love walking in the nature with my camera capturing the beauty of my surroundings.

I use my photos in the products I create which are wall clocks and sauna thermometers for example, read more about them here.

Kukas minä olen?

Turussa 25.3.1976 syntynyt Itseoppinut valokuvaaja, joka nykyisin asuu Isoluodon saarella lähellä Saloa.
Valokuviani on kutsuttu näyttelyihin aina Sveitsiin ja Lontooseen saakka ja Amerikkalaisen countrytähden Waylon Jennigsin tyttärenpoika, Struggle Jennings on käyttänyt kuviani usein bloggauksissaan.

Rakastan hylättyjen esineiden ja paikkojen kuvaamista, ja rakastan myös luonnossa kulkemista kamera kaulassani, vangiten kauneutta ympärilläni.

Käytän kuviani valmistamissani tuotteissa joita ovat mm. kellot ja saunamittarit joista voit lukea lisää täältä.
