Photography: Here Far Away, By Pentti Sammallahti (With an introduction by Finn Thrane)
Saturday 24 August 2013
Here Far Away is the first major retrospective by the leading international photographer Pentti Sammallahti. It covers more than 40 years of work from almost as many countries.
Born in 1950, in Helsinki, Finland, Sammallahti is recognised as a master craftsman in terms of photographic printing methods, and has been a major influence on published photographic art. In 2004, Henri Cartier-Bresson ranked Sammallahti among his favourite photographers. As a teacher, Sammallahti has had an enormous influence on a generation of documentary photographers in Scandinavia. His work is in many major international collections.
Writer, photographer and teacher Finn Thrane was the founding director of the Museum of Photographic Art, Odense, and creator and co-editor of CATALOG magazine.
