I went to see the Runo kuvaa 2 exhibition in Helsinki yesterday. It was a nice little exhibition in an atmospheric cellar space. Works in the exhibition show wide variety of photographic and writing styles which I think works really well. If you want to see it it’s open until 2.2 2018 in Helsingin Kellariteatteri, Helsinki, Finland. We also visited the Ateneum which among others had over 300 works from von Wright brothers. They really were masters on guiding viewers with light.
Imperfect is part of the Runokuvaa 2 (Poet pictures) project (https://www.facebook.com/events/1318340921604037/). There are eight image series/video and poet pairs in the exhibition in Helsingin Kellariteatteri, Helsinki, Finland 27.1 – 2.2 2018.
Back home from the Fotofinlandia trip to Helsinki (and Tampere). I didn’t have a budget to make prints that I wanted so I had to settle to normal prints. I thought I’ll highlight the simple prints by hanging them on the wall as plain prints. First I was going to use magnets but I changed the hang at the last moment when I saw Tiina Haring‘s exhibition at VB. I used nails and metal clips for the photos. For the story I used magnets on top of screws under the print. Then I placed bolt tops (which were cut off from short bolts) on top of the paper. They clicked to the magnets and kept the print in place and gave nice industrial look to it. If photos were glued to a foam board it might work quite nicely for photos too, but that’s too late for this exhibition.
Summer exhibition at Jori’s Bar. Atmospheric bar can be found from Kuopio center at Vuorikatu 26.
As a photographer of the year in local camera club I got an opportunity to put some of my photos on display under the Kuopio marketplace. It’s in the Apaja-hallway near Anttila entrance when you come in from the underground parking lot.
