"Do we need a fresh wind? Then hold on, here it is. Even more, it is a literal storm of images that is blowing our way from Finland." This is what the German Press Agency wrote about the first two volumes of the Helsinki School series, which triggered a great deal of enthusiasm, even outside of the photography scene. The new third volume continues in this vein, introducing promising young photographers from that talent forge way up north, TaiK, the University of Art and Design in Helsinki. The school teaches a very special approach to photography: not just particular ways of thinking about it, but also the notion of the camera as a conceptual tool - and all of this allows each generation a chance to reinvent itself. In this new volume, Timothy Persons and Katrin Hiller von Gaertringen introduce seventeen young artists and their incredibly multifaceted, experimental works of great technical perfection.

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.
