Pentti Sammallahti

Distant Land

20 June — 25 August, 2019

Distant Land is a fascinating journey to the mysterious land that is both presents at the moment and existing in our imagination.

Museum - Closed today

For over 50 years Sammallahti has captured the mysteries of nature, in all of its forms across the world, in exquisite imagery in which nature and artifice, reality and fantasy, become indisputably intertwined. He has developed a unique talent of observation, capturing seemingly ordinary scenes from everyday life, that in his lens are lifted to timeless compositions that remind of stills from a monochrome film, or grayscale landscape paintings.

"I feel like I received the photograph. I didn't take it. If you're in the right place at the right time, then all you have to do is push a button. Being a photographer doesn't come into it." Pentti Sammallahti
