Pentti Sammallahti

@ Galerie Wouter van Leeuwen 

Born in 1950 in Helsinki, Finland, Sammallahti’s travels and interest in fine printing and lithography has led him to publish numerous books of which one is ‘Ici et Loin’, Actes Sud 2012. As a benchmark figure in contemporary Finnish photography, his work has a supernatural sense of a moment in time with the sensitivity and beauty of the world displayed through its animalistic existence. His particular use of dogs, which reflects the human existential experience, shows the shared nature of the earth with a gentle humor and fleeting attitude.
