Sanna Kannisto | Illusionary Observations

Helsinki School artist Sanna Kannisto is participating in the group show Illusionary Observations at the Museum of Photography Braunschweig.

The exhibition will address subjects ranging from the representation of identity, nature and culture to the virtual tools of Google and Apple for the depiction of urbanity in order to re-interpret these subjects artistically."

Exhibition: 11 July – 27 September 2020
Pre-visit: 10 July from 1 p.m.
Venue: Museum of Photography Braunschweig 
Address: Helmstedter Straße 1, 38102 Braunschweig, Germany

Sanna Kannisto’s métier is nature photography. Like her role models, she considers herself both a scientist and an artist. And, in fact, her analytical gaze is in no way inferior to her creativity and passion. She creates moments of unusual beauty that also shed light on what has been previously concealed. Kannisto has her own method for taking pictures of birds, photographing the animals in front of a brilliantly lit, white background. Removed from their usual surroundings, every detail appears in matchless clarity, allowing for precise study. At the same time, this results in a unique visual aesthetic: the feathers glow brightly, the beating wings take on a majestic quality, and the deep black eyes of the birds seem to gaze hauntingly at the camera. The patience required to produce these pictures has paid off , since it is hard to imagine more beautiful photographs of birds.
