Heikki Kaski: Tranquillity
March 20 - May 17, 2015

Angle: Reinterpreting the Frame 4.3.-26.4.2015
Reinterpreting the Frame shows new artworks together with their inspirational origins. The roots of these works by five young Finnish artists go back to old archival images from the Museum’s collections.
Welcome to our online exhibitions From Misty Morning to Composition – Art Photography in Post-war Finland and Nature Photographs of the Year in Finland.
Picks from the Collection is the series, which presents photographs belonging to the collection.
KOVA is an audience development project that aims to improve the accessibility of the museum's collections and to engage diverse audiences in making and experiencing art. The project presents photographic art and culture to the residents of Kontula and Mellunkylä at Galleria Kontupiste.
In her lecture, Katja Eydel will present some of her work in relation to her artistic approach using and working with photography. Her projects focus on different environments that are often characterized by crisis — mostly dealing with communities and their fringes, with proxies and symbolic representations, as manifested, for example, in forms of protest or religious garments.

The year 2015 marks the 150th anniversary of the birth of the great Finnish photographer I.K. Inha. To celebrate that, we just published a set of the photos that he took of Helsinki in 1908. During early summer mornings and quiet summer evenings, Inha photographed Helsinki's historical city center, handsome new buildings, sea sides and parks.
The Finnish Museum of Photography and the unit of Photography at the Department of Media at Aalto University are arranging a series of joint lectures where you will have the opportunity to hear the views and perspectives of world-renowned critics, curators, museum directors and other professionals from various fields of art. If you missed a lecture, you will be able to see the video here on the museum's website!
