The House of Poets presents photographs by Timo Kelaranta from the past five years. The energy of the magical pictures derives from a combination of play and experimentation that sometimes contains echoes of surrealism. Kelaranta works with found materials, such as metal, plastic and paper, thereby giving the photographs a new, poetic dimension. Most of the photographs in the book are from a recent series on the theme of paper as material. The geometric shapes of a circle, ellipse or drop are repeated in the pictures, yet emptiness also plays an important role, making the pictures approach the boundary between the material and the immaterial, thus adding to them an element of silence and timelessness. Finnish photographer Timo Kelaranta (b. 1951) has worked as a photographic artist since the mid-1970s. He has served twice as Professor of Photography at the University of Art and Design Helsinki (currently Aalto University School of Arts, Design and Architecture).

I find it amazing that after twenty years of existence, the Helsinki School cannot be defined by any one fixed point of view. Conceptually there is a red thread connecting one generation to another in the way they perceive and present their ideas but not necessarily in how they apply them.
Timothy Persons (introduction)

Following the first four volumes of the Helsinki School, this new publication looks back at the development of this group of photographers over the past twenty years and traces the emergence of the photographic tendency bearing this name.

In a collection of essays, international curators, art critics, and museum directors describe their encounters with the Helsinki School, from the first exhibitions in the late nineties to the youngest generation of photographers. A discussion between Timothy Persons and Alistair Hicks concludes these contributions. The texts are accompanied by installation shots from numerous international exhibitions, archival materials, books, posters, invitations, and most recent works by the different generations of artists.
