Longing for reality Landscape photographs 2003 2007
My master thesis consists of landscape photographs with the keynote on modern environment and infrastructure. These photographs have mostly been taken in Helsinki or in it’s surrounding between 2003 and 2007.
Personal observations and sublime experiences perceived in front of a modern landscape have been important factors for my photographs. The intertwining of nature and infrastructure, and of beauty and ugliness interests me in the contemporary landscape. Photography makes it possible to examine reality through a high resolution visual record which at the same time goes beyond the ordinary.
A poet of the romantic era Ludwig Tieck wrote in 1795: ‘A wonderful utopia lies often right at our feet.’ During this project I have unconsciously tried to follow the promise of the quote.
