Samples of my best work are shown on these pages:
Spiders and insects
Graffiti in Helsinki (1986)
My high school art teacher set up a darkroom in the school basement and taught our class to use it. That's when I got really excited about photography and bought my first own camera in 1987. It was a Pentax Super A body with a 50 mm f/1.4 prime lens. I familiarized myself with wonderful products such as Kodak Tri-X 400 film and legendary Agfa Rodinal developer. Oh, the massive grain structure!
Soviet Union (1987-1988)
Sielun veljet live at Lepakko (December 6, 1988)
The monochrome period left me with some 30000 hand-developed negatives.
I became a university professor in the field of mathematics in 2006, and the job involves a lot of traveling. That's why my recent art involves a lot of landscape and cityscape photos.
These days I shoot with a Pentax K-5 body and mostly with my beloved Carl Zeiss lenses (21mm f/2.8, 50mm f/2 macro and 85mm f/1.4).
