The Finnish Museum of Photography

Susanna Majuri: Love

K1 Kämp Galleria
10.9.–14.1.
The retrospective exhibition of the work of Susanna Majuri (1978–2020), titled Love, gathers together photographs from her entire career: her most well-known pieces are shown side by side with less common early works.

Festival of Political Photography 2021: Bird’s-Eye View

The Cable Factory
8.10.–6.1.
What if a crow could take photographs? What kinds of photos would it take? What would the world look like through the eyes of a bird? Opening in October 2021, the title of the fifth Festival of Political Photography is ‘Bird’s-Eye View’. The festival reflects, through photography, on the capacity of humans to imagine the perspective of birds and to understand the world in an alternate way through that lens.

Cecilia Vicuña: Songs to the Waters

K1 Kämp Galleria
10.9.–14.1.
Poetry and political resistance are inextricably intertwined in the artistic work of Cecilia Vicuña. The Chilean artist's works are on display for the first time in Finland.

Cartes-de-visite from the Finnish Museum of Photography

Länsilinkki
1.12.2019–31.12.2021
 A view of a pedestrian and cycling path under a bridge. In the foreground is a blurry cyclist. In one pillar of the bridge there is an advertisement that has an old black and and white photograph. The ad says: " Do you notice how different worlds have been created in studios?"
