I am a 51-year-old photographer, I live and work mainly in Mikkeli, Finland. I started photographing when i was a teenager. I also worked as a press photographer.
My documentary approach is characteristic for my artistic work. I often work on the same project for years, but there may be 2-3 projects going on at the same time.

[The photos I present were taken in June 2020 in the Åland archipelago on a small island called Källskär. It is a part of Finland, situated in the Baltic Sea. We were there for 2 weeks during an art recidence in a small cottage. The landscape is rugged but beautiful. The photographs are part of a wider series of different watersheds.
