Book : The Helsinki School - Vol. 4
A Female View.
Pure girl power: the Helsinki School´s female photographers introduce themselves.
Photography has in the meantime become one of Finland´s biggest exports. Graduates of Aalto University's Schlool of Art and Design in Helsinki exhibit their pictures around the globe. Also extraordinarily successful are previous volumes of The Helsinki School, a series devoted to these young artists and their works. Now, the fourth volume of the series focuses on female artists, inquiring into the possibility of a special female point of view. Innovative concepts and techniques as well as a variety of forms distinguish the work of this generation of photographers—the spectrum ranges from Tiina Itkonen´s documentary-style pictures of Greenland and Anni Leppälä´s theatrically staged interiors to the painterly nature studies by Sandra Kantanen. Timothy Persons presents the twenty artists and their highly individual artistic stances.
