"Fallen" exhibition

Few photos of my latest photo exhibition. The images are part of my ongoing documentary project, where in the spirit of wabi-sabi I am capturing the withered remains of flower arrangements at my home.

New Year, New Website

Welcome to my new website, and to my new blog. As you might have noticed, many things has changed but this way I find it easier to combine my portfolio and still share my on going works and projects here on the blog.  

At the edge of the new year it is nice to look back and revise the 2017.  This past year I wished to push myself and had 52 photoshoots. It was a great pleasure to get to know so many new people; models, designers, hair and make-up artists, stylists, companies, PR agencies and publishers. I also had two small exhibitions and set designed a short film. During the year we moved and renovated twice. In 2017 I visited Tehran, Berlin, Poland and Pärnu where I was part of a jury for the Pärnu International Documentary and Anthropology Film Festival.

During the year I learned a lot - both by mistakes and by success. Spending so much time in studio allowed me to explore and try many new lighting techniques and little tricks here and there to make the practise more smooth. On the other hand this coming year I hope to do a lot more photos on locations to be able to create atmospheres and communication between a model and a space. I don't want to get too comfortable, but to shake my ground when ever it starts to feel a bit too stable. It is tough but for me it is the only way to get forward.

I wish you all happy new year and can't wait to see what it brings to us!

All the best,

Esa
