Like poems, Wilma Hurskainen’s photographs perceptively link poetry with humour and open up spaces of associations to own experiences of the spectator. In her No Name series, Hurskainen, who has strong connections with the Helsinki School, explores the themes of childhood and memory. Childhood and adulthood are present, like layers, in the same photograph. By loosely attaching texts to the images, Hurskainen recreates memories (including those that are false and invented) and continues their visual representation. Her main objective is to find out and question how a text and a photograph mediate a story.

In his first monograph, And Time is No Longer an Obstacle, Niko Luoma invites the viewer to his universe of light and repetition, including works between 2006 and 2012. Inspired by mathematics and geometry, Luoma focuses on the process as content and creates fascinating, abstract compositions through multiple exposures. With his analogue series based on light and abstract imagery, he is expanding the boundaries of the photographic process.
