Sandra Kantanen | LANDSCAPES | 23 October — 10 December 2010
POBEDA Gallery is proud to present first solo-show of Sandra Kantanen, the brightest representative of Helsinki school of Photography. The project “LANDSCAPES” includes series created during photographer’s travelling in Japan, China, Finland, etc.
Sandra Kantanen is the graduatee of the University of Art and Design in Helsinki. Helsinki school is famous for its recognizable aesthetics, unorthodox approach to teaching, call to creativity. It is not defined by a specific discipline or geographic region. It represents a way of thinking where everyone is given a chance to invent and express oneself.
Sandra’s works are combination of painting and photography; it’s more about abstract than figural, however, she’s always following the canons of art photography. Fusion of different cultures seen by the photographer gave her insight to perceive image from a different angle.
The project will include one photographic work from “russian” series created during Sandra’s trip to Solovetsky Islands.
Within the framework of the project Sandra Kantanen will be lecturing at MEDIASchool where she will speak about University of Art and Design methods of teaching and her own method of printing.
