Ilmanranta - Vedenraja - Finis Terrae
Water has always fascinated me. It’s special among the elements. At the same time familiar, even from the womb, still unknown in the abyss. I started photographing water as soon as I got my first camera. I felt the element dear to me.

My photographs content water in some form. My book Finis Terrae was published in 2007. It is about places where the land ends and the water begins. Both sides of that book I designed portfolios. The first one, Ilmanranta – Éire, is about the meeting point of land and air. The second one, Vedenraja – Mare, which is my final work is about the edge of the water. In the process I learned a new photographing method – underwater photography. I photographed the pictures of that portfolio during the years 2006-2008 in Costa Rica, in Cyprus and the Mediterranean and in the Red Sea. In my black and white photography the darkness of the abyss meets the crystalline light of the surface.
