“Trace of time”
The exhibition of photographer Sanni Seppo deals with the relationship between man and nature. How close nature is and how time passes. The exhibition will open on Tuesday, October 23 at 5 p.m.
“I have been photographing nature and my family for years. The place for this has been a small warm lake with dark water. This place is very meaningful to me. I’ve spent more time there than anywhere else. Life has brought many changes, births and deaths, but this small lake is always there, ”says the artist. “It’s easy to calm down and I feel safe there. Memories related to Lake Soojärv also divide my life into periods. ”
Sanni Seppo’s favorite object is the old forest. “The time of the old forest is different from that of man. An upright dead tree (sm. Kelopuu) may have started its life even a thousand years ago. And next to it is a plant that is just beginning its life. It seems liberating when you compare your life in the forest to a deeply long time. Next to it, the time of the forest is eternal. It’s easy to feel small in this endless stream of time. ”
Sanni Seppo (born 1960) graduated from the Academy of Arts with a degree in photography in 1993. He has organized several exhibitions both in Finland and abroad. In addition to photography, he works as a photojournalist and teacher.
