Exhibit / Näyttely · LIVE IN NYC · JAN 10th-FEB 9th 2014

I just got a word yesterday that my photography exhibit 'LIVE IN NYC' will be LIVE in the old Town Hall Gallery by the Old Great Square in Turku in January 10th - February 9th 2014. I am VERY excited about that. Preparations for the exhibit and opening have already started! The show should be well worth a visit and the admission is free.

The gallery space is perfect for my show - the historical building space combined with modern dancers and cityscapes of New York City will create a unique juxtaposition of time & space.

Gallery is open Tuesday-Friday 12-19 and Saturday-Sunday 11-17.

My photographs are featured in an article in BETONILEHTI (Concrete Magazine Finland) about a pure concrete house in Hirvensalo, Turku, Finland. Very interesting use of materials and a beautiful end result.

Row 1, seat 21 - from that location I used three cameras to get the best photos I could of the judges and contestants. This was the second live show of the second season of Voice of Finland. Show was presented by Axl Smith and the 'star' judges were Paula KoivuniemiMichael Monroe, Lauri Tähkä & Elastinen.

WIKIPEDIA:  The Voice of Finland is a Finnish reality singing competition and local version of The Voice first broadcast as The Voice of Holland. The series was renewed for a second season which premiered on January 4, 2013. One of the important premises of the show is the quality of the singing talent. Four coaches, themselves popular performing artists, train the talents in their group and occasionally perform with them.
