GoSee loves … Santeri Tuori ‘Time Is No Longer Round’ – fascinating nature compositions by Wolkenbergen and tree landscapes (Hatje Cantz publishing)
Hatje Cantz publishes with Santeri Tuori ‘Time Is No Longer Round’ a poetic illustrated book which inspires dreaming. And if you take your time, you’ll discover, in the compositions of trees, tangled branches, and clouds, sophisticated montages made up of countless photos arranged side-by-side or on top of one an ther. This results in nearly abstract, fascinatingly complex images of nature; the eye is no longer guided toward a vanishing point, but instead, viewers are granted numerous perspectives, allowing them to discover new phenomena. At the beginning, you look up into the treetops. These are followed by pictures of clouds set at eye level. It comes full circle finally in a series of photographs that looks back to the abstract entanglement of the treetops.
His precise eye for singular photography montages makes SANTERI TUORI (*1970, Espoo, Finland) one of the most famous representatives of the Helsinki School. He studied at the University of the Arts in Berlin as well as at Aalto University in Helsinki. His works are found in prominent exhibitions and collections around the world.
