TUHAT SANAA LUMELLE Thousand words of snow
I can't believe it has been two months since I arrived in Finland, as a resident artist of RAUMARS. It has been two months in which I have been capturing the local snow and ice formations. Since childhood I knew that northern languages have hundreds of words for snow. This year I was finally given the opportunity to learn a few of the Finnish terms, see them, and capture them in photos. The exhibition is called Thousand Words of Snow, or in Finnish TUHAT SANAA LUMELLE.
The exhibition will take place from Feb 23 to March 23, and will include over 20 of my photos, as well as some photos of three guest photographers. These amazing local photographers, who have helped me so much throughout this project, are Teemu Laulajainen, Altti A. Salo, and Raimo Sundelin. I also wish to extend special thank you to RAUMARS, that made this project possible.
This photo, from the exhibition, is of lumipeitto or blanket snow. I was so lucky to see this snow just as I arrived. It has never been as snowy after that.
