Petri Damstén is a dark art photographer and nerd from Kuopio, Finland. His passion for photography started after retiring from his day job as a software engineer, and he now explores the darker side of life through his art. His images are often moody, surreal, and unsettling, with self-portraiture playing a significant role in his work. As a result, he has experience both behind and in front of the camera. Petri has won numerous awards for his photography in Finland and internationally, including being a Fotofinlandia finalist and receiving the PX3 Gold award in Paris, France.
