Photography Into Art

If you are interested in photography as an art form in Finland you should pay a visit to the Finnish Museum of Photography. The exhibition is based on a huge private collection by Erja Hannula and Jorma Hinkka. Pictures over three decades tell the unique story of how Finnish photography established itself as a fully-fledged art form. A diverse mixture of photos shows the different periods and changes photography underwent.

 The museum also displays an overview of the work of the renowned Finnish photographer Nelli Palomäki. She became internationally known by her classical black and white portraits. Some of the audience favorites can be seen along with some new works.

Both exhibitions are still on display till 21.04.2013. Tickets for the museum cost 6€/4€ (under 18-year-olds free).
