Pictures

I'm back! I forgot to take my camera with me on our vernissage on Friday, but I will hopefully get some pictures that Johanna took. Anyway, here are some pictures of some of my paintings/drawings and Johannas photographs that are now hanging on the gallery walls, sorry for the bad pictures they're too dark and blurry.

"Alster- a piece of us" is an exhibition all about fear and identity through photography and paintings. Johanna's photographs reflects fear of losing control while Maria's paintings depict a form of escapism."








and then some of Johanna's beautiful photographs (wish I had a better picture):



This last one is my favourite. A portait of our friend Sawandi together with his grandfather. It belongs to the series about somehow "different" finnish-swedish Ostrobothnian men with a strong identity. It doesn't belong to the same theme as the rest of the exhibition.
I wish Johanna had a homepage so you all could have a better look and see more of her works.
