Photo exhibition – Hannes Heikura

image

One of Finlands most renown photographer (mainly known for newspaper coverage with the Helsingin Sanomat) is having a exhibition in Salo until 31.3. 2013. Hannes Heikura has been numerously awarded for his photos and it was great to get to see his work in big print. The art museum of Salo is located in an old building that used to service locomotives for the railway. The building is excellent in layout for art exhibitions. The works of Heikura which were on show were all black and white. The shots were all large and printed on aluminum which seems to help with the contrast as well. The theme was “alone” and apparently all of the photos were taken in Helsinki. I am not a criticas such so all I can say ia the photos were great and if you have the chance do visit.

Salossa sijaitsevassa Veturitalli nimisessä taidemuseossa on esillä Hannes Heikuran valokuvanäyttely maaliskuun loppuun saakka.

Heikura on ehkäpä tunnetuin suomalainen lehtikuvaaja joka teki yli 20v uran Hesarin kuvaajana. Hän on myös saanut lukuisia palkintoja Suomessa.

Valokuvanäyttelyssä esillä oleva tuotanto on sitä taiteellisempaa Heikuraa, mustavalkoisia ja vahvakontrastisia kuvia Helsingin kaduilta ja kujilta. Hienoja kuvia erittäin tyylikkäästi vedostettuna alumiinipohjalle.

Näyttely on ehdottomasti näkemisen arvoinen..
