Tessa Ojala: Sulje silmäsi pahalta - Close your eyes to the bad things

So many negative news; wars and nature catastrophes. Pictures of destruction, despair, malice. Pictures I don't want to see.

Themes of my photographs are escapism and the search of beauty. You can try to live in your own little world and close the negative things away, but maybe you will miss something then?

Annu Salminen: Jaettu arki - Shared Family

In year 2007 my daughter Aamu turned 3 years old and got a digital toy camera for her birthday present. Aamu started photographing the everyday life of our family. Aamu's photographs show the little big things. The children's movement is present in my photographs.

Aamu's photos are large prints, mine are small ones. This emphasizes the difficulty of  two different perspectives. You must choose which photographs you are looking.
