Swedish photographer JH Engström (b. 1969) is known for his personal photographic series, in which he has expressively documented himself and those around him. The exhibition at the Finnish Museum of Photography is, to date, the broadest sample of JH Engström’s artistic production, with photographs from 1991 to 2017.
The Photobooks from Finland association has conceived an exhibition and a photobook, both based on doing things collectively. Eight artists were selected for the project in the spring of 2018. The thematic starting point was the Finnish landscape.
