Aapo Huhta

Finnish, 1985–present

Huhta combines elements of documentary practise with his own subjective observations, building a range of ambiguous and often fragmented narratives in his work. Exploring different forms of photographic essay, its methods and possibilities is playing a major role in his work. The exploration has culminated in two photo books, Block (Kehrer Verlag, 2015) and Omatandangole (Kehrer Verlag, 2019). Aesthetically, Huhta’s images are often recognised for their outstanding graphical quality.

The artist received an MA from Helsinki’s Aalto University of Arts and Design, having initially pursued a career in education. Huhta’s work has been recognised and exhibited by institutions such as World Press Photo, Fotografiska and Magnum Photos, whilst his images have been published by the likes of Vice, Paper Journal, GUP Magazine, Dazed, The Guardian, Stern and Die Zeit Magazine.
