I’m interested in encounters: what happens when I meet and take pictures of random people in a strange country? We may not have a common language or culture, just the moment when our roads cross. What comes next? Possibly some sort of a view about the environment and the people who live or visit this area. Both, the location and the people, have their own history and their own present situation, and in addition to all that, there’s a stranger’s look, mine.

In June 2017, I learned to know the district of Wedding in Berlin, doing some background work for this forthcoming exhibition. My idea is to take most of the pictures for the exhibition during the three weeks before the opening and also continue taking pictures for a week after that. The show is allowed to change and live through my experiences.

I have been a press photographer for well over thirty years. At the same time I have given my own photo exhibitions, and collaborated with artists, both in Finland and internationally. I am pleased to give an exhibition of my project Encounters in Toolbox, which is located in the heart of Wedding.

The exhibition has been supported by Finnish JOKES (Foundation for Promotion of Journalistic Culture).
