This book is a playful, tentative and imaginative exploration into the photographic archive as generator of multiple meanings and plentiful source of inspiration.

The bodies of work, Present (Thank You Helvi Ahonen) by Hertta Kiiski and Archival Studies / A Portrait of an Invisible Woman by Niina Vatanen, were created as a response to the Helvi Ahonen collection, housed at the Finnish Museum of Photography. The 5,000 negatives that make up the original collection tell a touching story about the amateur photographer Helvi Ahonen’s life, with all its joys and sorrows.

Archive Play is a joint effort between the curator Mirjami Schuppert and the artists Hertta Kiiski and Niina Vatanen. While it is a culmination of an intensive research and collaboration project, the documentation of the exhibition Glimpses of the Unattainable (Finnish Museum of Photography, Helsinki, spring 2014), it also is an independent work on its own. To accompany the photographs, a further interpretative layer is created by a fictional story written by Monika Fagerholm, an esteemed Finnish author.

Niina Vatanen’s first monograph, A Room’s Memory, includes four bodies of work created between 2006 and 2012: A Room’s Memory, The Red Letter (and Other Confessions), A Seamstress’s Notes and Grey Diary. Vatanen builds layers into her images through e.g. painting, cutting, bonding, staging and re-photographing. The images emerging interweave into a layered tapestry of time and memory.

Published by: Lugemik, Tallinn,  2016

It feels as if there is no time or place. It’s possible that there is no time or place. I feel like saying: as if they were floating.                               

Harry Salmenniemi 

Towards Nothing is a book of visual and textual poetry. The title indicates a journey with an unidentified destination, but it is more likely an attempt to reach a state of pure being. Mikko Rikala’s first book is a monograph juxtaposing his photography-based works with a text by the Finnish writer, Harry Salmenniemi.

In his works, Mikko Rikala often investigates the boundaries between rationality and irrationality. The images in the book depict a certain tone of objectivity and reveal a meditative state through Rikala’s way of observation. Harry Salmenniemi’s poetic, diary-like text equilibrates and complements Mikko Rikala’s pictures creating a delicate balance between the sense of rationality and irrationality.

Rikala often utilizes the act of repetition as a metaphor of the passing of time. The content and structure of the book are constructed by the reappearance of certain themes and images. In the work Morning Is Evening in Reverse the traces of sunlight indicate the cycle of a day, measured by the passing of time and the changes of light between sunrise and sunset. As if time would exist in a constant loop; it opens up our senses towards a new way of perception.

Finnish photographer Riitta Päiväläinen’s work could be defined as the emotional archaeology of the ordinary. Using old clothes she finds in secondhand shops and flea markets, Päiväläinen creates installations in landscapes and photographs them. For Päiväläinen, the clothes are vestiges of human beings, retaining traces of the history of the person who wore them long after being discarded. The garments represent both the presence and the absence of their former owners. Päiväläinen uses the properties of the landscape in Finland, England or Japan, as a stage for displaying the clothes. By soaking them in water and placing them outside in the Finnish winter, for example, the garments freeze solid, filling out as if someone were wearing them. This gives them a sculptural quality and opens manifold metaphorical and narrative possibilities.

Imaginary Homecoming

Published by: Pohjoinen Publications, 1999
Format: Hardcover
Artist: Jorma Puranen
Language: English / Finnish
ISBN 9517493274

A book by Jorma Puranen, inspired by and drawing on an archive of late 19th-century portraits of the Sami people of Lapland at the Musee de l’Homme in Paris. Puranen traveled to the original source of the images in Northern Norway and reinserted his rephotographed images of the portraits in the Northern landscape, creating a sort of dialogue between past and present, and both a tapestry and continuum of existence, with portraits standing in for present-day Sami and appearing on trees, rocks, water, snow. Like much of contemporary Finnish photography that is conceptual, the body of work is extremely layered and resonant, both intellectually rigorous and emotional.

"In Icy Prospects I have expressly reflected on the nature of the painterly, the sublime, and the mysterious.” Jorma Puranen

His latest series, Icy Prospects, was inspired by the ways the great explorers as well as today’s tourists to the North Pole are fascinated by the arctic landscape. Puranen painted a board with black, high-gloss acrylic and then took long exposures of the icy landscapes mirrored in this wooden surface. The results are extremely painterly, highly aesthetic, fragmented impressions of nature in which the ground, the brushstroke, and the reflection are inseparably superimposed. In this way, the photographer creates a relationship between the philosophical concept of the "sublime terror” of the forces of nature and his own experience of life in these regions, typifying the north as a projection surface for fantasies and the imagination.

Nelli Palomäki’s first monograph Breathing the Same Air presents works taken between 2007 and 2012. Palomäki’s timeless black-and-white portraits of children and young adults deal with themes as growing up, memory and mortality. They reveal the fragility of the moment shared with her subject. In Palomäki’s own words: "What I desire to find and reveal might be someone’s secret. These secrets, finally shown to the viewers, as they were mine.”

In his first monograph, And Time is No Longer an Obstacle, Niko Luoma invites the viewer to his universe of light and repetition, including works between 2006 and 2012. Inspired by mathematics and geometry, Luoma focuses on the process as content and creates fascinating, abstract compositions through multiple exposures. With his analogue series based on light and abstract imagery, he is expanding the boundaries of the photographic process.

Maanantai is formed by a group of young photographers from Helsinki. It all started after a succession of Monday meetings, when they decided to escape North to the Norwegian Lofoten Islands, where Nine Nameless Mountains became their story. Challenging the notion of authorship with a body of work made by one common author with 16 eyes, it is a poetical and absurd topographical exploration of the notion of distance and scales – latitude versus altitude.

The book follows the group experimentations, with the mountain as a "leitmotif”, the escaping horizon as a metaphor for life and the impossibility to reach an absolute goal; it revisits the genre of the road-trip with an impish attitude and curiosity towards the unknown. On their way North, the artists played together with natural elements -stones, waves, light, sand, clouds – to create a playfully confusing story, their motive for the celebration of friendship, photography and chance.

"The book was more than any other aspects of the project a space for experimentation, our common territory for tries and surprises. A place where each of us was confronted with the visions of the others and where we could go beyond any individual copyright. We perceived the book as a strong medium; it has its own weight on the ground, like a rock.”

The House of Poets presents photographs by Timo Kelaranta from the past five years. The energy of the magical pictures derives from a combination of play and experimentation that sometimes contains echoes of surrealism. Kelaranta works with found materials, such as metal, plastic and paper, thereby giving the photographs a new, poetic dimension. Most of the photographs in the book are from a recent series on the theme of paper as material. The geometric shapes of a circle, ellipse or drop are repeated in the pictures, yet emptiness also plays an important role, making the pictures approach the boundary between the material and the immaterial, thus adding to them an element of silence and timelessness. Finnish photographer Timo Kelaranta (b. 1951) has worked as a photographic artist since the mid-1970s. He has served twice as Professor of Photography at the University of Art and Design Helsinki (currently Aalto University School of Arts, Design and Architecture).

Photography is one of the most successful items of cultural export in Finland. Now, for the first time, the internationally acknowledged artists are gathered together in one extensive book accompanying an exhibition travelling around the world. The Helsinki School presents works from over thirty different artists who have been studying or teaching at TaiK, the University of Art and Design in Helsinki. The goal is to introduce a new approach to where photography is in Finland today. Based on a concept by Timothy Persons and Jorma Puranen the amply illustrated volume presents an astounding overview.

In 2010 more Americans were living below the poverty line than at any time since 1959, when the U.S. Census Bureau began collecting this data. In 2011, Kira Pollack, Director of Photography at Time, commissioned Joakim Eskildsen to photograph this growing crisis affecting nearly 46.2 million Americans. Based on census data, Eskildsen, together with journalist Natasha del Toro, travelled to the places with the highest poverty rates in New York, California, Louisiana, South Dakota and Georgia over seven months to document the lives of those behind the statistics. The people Eskildsen has portrayed — those who struggle to make ends meet, who have lost their jobs or homes and often live in unhealthy conditions—usually remain invisible in a society to which the myth of the American Dream still remains strong. Many of Eskildsen’s subjects hold there is no such dream anymore — merely the American Reality.

I find it amazing that after twenty years of existence, the Helsinki School cannot be defined by any one fixed point of view. Conceptually there is a red thread connecting one generation to another in the way they perceive and present their ideas but not necessarily in how they apply them.
Timothy Persons (introduction)

Following the first four volumes of the Helsinki School, this new publication looks back at the development of this group of photographers over the past twenty years and traces the emergence of the photographic tendency bearing this name.

In a collection of essays, international curators, art critics, and museum directors describe their encounters with the Helsinki School, from the first exhibitions in the late nineties to the youngest generation of photographers. A discussion between Timothy Persons and Alistair Hicks concludes these contributions. The texts are accompanied by installation shots from numerous international exhibitions, archival materials, books, posters, invitations, and most recent works by the different generations of artists.

The fourth volume of the books of the Helsinki School 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.

"Do we need a fresh wind? Then hold on, here it is. Even more, it is a literal storm of images that is blowing our way from Finland." This is what the German Press Agency wrote about the first two volumes of the Helsinki School series, which triggered a great deal of enthusiasm, even outside of the photography scene. The new third volume continues in this vein, introducing promising young photographers from that talent forge way up north, TaiK, the University of Art and Design in Helsinki. The school teaches a very special approach to photography: not just particular ways of thinking about it, but also the notion of the camera as a conceptual tool - and all of this allows each generation a chance to reinvent itself. In this new volume, Timothy Persons and Katrin Hiller von Gaertringen introduce seventeen young artists and their incredibly multifaceted, experimental works of great technical perfection.
