“In the Eye of the Beholder” is a beautiful saying full of mystery. What is actually in the eye of the beholder, how much of yourself is in every observation you make? And are you aware of how much your interpretation is part of a creation?
There is a need for mystery in the materialistic Western world. And the work of Pentti Sammallahti meets those needs in the most gentle, humoristic and thoughtful way.
A poetic observer with a unique and inclusive eye to the world around him, recognised as a master craftsman both in terms of the photographic print as well as in mechanical printing methods. Fotografiska is proud to present Distant Land, a major exhibition with the legendary Finnish photographer Pentti Sammallahti, curated by Anna Mustonen.
