Musta tuntuu -

Vasta painetut Kerällä -kirjani matkailivat kustannustoimittajani pöydälle perjantaina. Niistä löytyvät muun muassa nämä kuvat helppoine ohjeineen, joita on yhteensä 45 kipaletta. Vallan kelvollisesti tekemistä muutamaksi syksyiseksi ja talviseksi kuuksi, kun käsityöt maittavat aivan eri mallilla kuin keskikesän kuumilla. Kirjoitan lisää, kunhan pääsen selailemaan omaa kappalettani. Myyntikipaleet saapunevat Kerään loppuviikosta, toivon. Huh, pää lyö paraikaa tyhjää...

The crowd-funded Atelieri O.Haapala book is finally here and it is so beautiful I almost want to cry! The bi-lingual book -the texts are both in Finnish and English- features the studio's portraits and distinctive style of photography from the last decade (the studio/project was active 2008-2016 and produced more than 7000 portraits),  taking you on a journey trough an imaginary past: Performers, artists, family portraits, guests at events who photographed themselves in the popup photo booth...

On Friday I participated on a flower arrangement show at the Spring Fair where we visitors got to see how professional florist makes flower bouquets. Perjantaina osallistuin Kevätmessuilla kukkien sidontanäytökseen, jossa me vierailijat pääsimme näkemään, kuinka kukka-asetelmat syntyvät ammatilaiselta. The show was held by talented Saija Sitolahti who made several gorgeous arrangements. She is such a lovely person that it's always nice to see her working. Näytöksen piti lahjakas...

Is This (photographic) Art? -

Ran into the concept of artworld and its interesting definitions. One specifically caught my attention, namely one by Howard Becker ( Art Worlds . Berkley : University of California Press, 1982). The basic idea is that artworlds are communities of networked individuals and that art is collective actions within the community. To blend in some Forrest Gump - Art is what artist does, sir! Thinking it like this makes it easier to accept that there no (and can't be) specifiq measures on defined...

I thought about that I do not write on my blog before we get a new traffic sign in Haaga, but then I decided against it. I realized that it will take as long as I predicted. And if I do not write, no one would read this. So let’s write. Jukka got a challenge from a friend of his, it is a book challenge in which you have to name a list of books. After you have explained why these books are important to you, you can challenge five persons to this challenge. Even though it would be extremely...

(This post is dedicated to everyone who is STILL waiting for their ME2 CE a full week after it was released outside Europe, SetAsEssential among many sad others!) So I got my Mass Effect 2 Collectors' Edition from Tilt Game Store on Tuesday. After waiting in line in vain for almost 2 months, I had to cancel my preorder from Verkkokauppa.com (I'm NOT advertising them by giving a link). Instead, I accidentally found out that Tilt Game store had them in stock, so I just marched right in and got my...

Finns Down Under -

Suomi-Seura Ry:n julkaisemassa Suomen Silta-lehdessä on Kielisten maassa-kirjasta juttu. Lehti löytynee kirjastoista kautta maan. Julkaisukuukausi on muistaakseni marraskuu 2008... Harmikseni en ole itse lehteä vielä nähnyt, mutta saamistani tiedusteluista päätellen, juttu on otettu vastaan mielenkiinnolla. Finland Bridge , published by Finland Society, has an article regarding Finns Down Under book. I believe the magazine is easy to find from any library in Finland. If I remember right...

Marilyn Monroe Book Blog -

Please scroll down to read the review in English Museo Salvatore Ferragamo Firenzessä, Italiassa järjesti vuonna 2012 Marilyn-näyttelyn, jossa nähtiin kenkien lisäksi muun muassa Marilynin vaatteita. Näyttelyn pohjalta koostettiin kirja, nimeltään yksinkertaisen ytimekkäästi Marilyn. Kyseessä ei ole mikään ohut näyttelykatalogi, vaan suurikokoinen kuvateos, joka sisältää myös esseitä ja pohdintaa ilmiöstä nimeltä Marilyn. Esseet vaihtelevat tasoltaan paljonkin. Esimerkiksi...

my life and other lies -

I was once asked how I'd feel if someone called me a pervert for photographing "half-naked women". Honestly, I would feel bad. ...that they've obviously missed out on my work with fully nude women. What is any art worth, if it doesn't provoke some thought, feeling, criticism, or- yes- offense, in someone ? Think of your favorite song, movie, book, picture, etc.- they didn't get to be your favorite without engaging some joy, sadness, pleasure, anger or new perspective. For the exact same reasons...

We paid a visit to the church on last Sunday, not because we wanted to praise the lord, but we were interested in hearing the game music when it was played by using the organ of the church. The organ is the fine instrument and the acoustics is always special in the church. In addition the church is very magnificent, it keeps inside an artwork from my favorite artist (or one of them) : Hugo Simberg. I definitely recommend to visit here if you are around the corner.  I'm not at all religious...

On Sunday evening we were adventuring around my old corners and stopped by this art center which actually was very unfamiliar location to us both. I lived close to it before and have passed by it several times, but I didn't know what that place really keeps inside. It's an old mental hospital or at least I have heard a legend of that. These days there seems to act an art center and they coincidentally had an exhibition going on. I was just going to see the coffin which was filled with the books...

Finns Down Under -

I am happy to let you know that there was an article about Finns Down Under book in today´s Helsingin Sanomat , more specifically on the ´´Sunday pages´´. I actually bought a 24-hr-right-to-read- the-paper (for €1)... The article was written by Kaisa Uusipaikka. She based the main story mostly on Finnish migration in Australia and for the shorter pieces that went along with the pictures, she had called the people in pictures and interviewed them. Very interesting! I also really liked the...

I celebrated my book launch with sparkling wine and cake. And lots of dear friends. You can see a peek into the book in this post. My talented friend made an amazing cake (chocolate with raspberry mousse and Bailey's mascarpone fillings) decorated with items I have tutorials for in the book made from sugar paste. The box that was supposed to be filled with my books was mostly filled with baby books.. hmmm... Luckily the right books arrived after a phone call. It wasn't just pretty on the...

Anyone who has rad my blog troughout the years would by this point be familiar with Atelieri O.Haapala ,  the neo-victorian portrait studio by Saara Salmi and Marco Melander! The project went on for a decade, and there were many amazing themes, backdrops and set ups, with thousands of beautiful pictures as a result. I've had the pleasure to have my photo taken several time during the years, both in studio but mainly at the pop-up events. And now they are aiming to make a beautiful and...

STUFF ON MY MIND -

I've bought this book a while back, but yesterday I actually read some of it for the first time.  The chapter 5, "Child abuse", hit home. It describes rather accurately how my life has been, what kind of a struggle and anxiety I've experienced. Most of the writer's examples are very extreme and deal with sexual abuse, but the structure of the experience is similar.  Some quotes that I feel describe my life well:  "The child trapped in an abusive environment is faced with formidable tasks of...
