Sandra Kantanen’s monograph Landscapes, presents works created between 2001 and 2010. Strongly influenced by traditional Chinese landscape painting, Kantanen combines two media and utilizes painterly means to achieve the poetic expression of her works. First printed on hand-painted metal grounds and then digitally processed – creating distortion, blurring, or streaking – the works of Kantanen investigate and expand the boundaries of photography itself.

The fourth volume of the books of the Helsinki School focuses on female artists, inquiring into the possibility of a special female point of view. Innovative concepts and techniques as well as a variety of forms distinguish the work of this generation of photographers – the spectrum ranges from Tiina Itkonen´s documentary style pictures of Greenland and Anni Leppälä´s theatrically staged interiors to the painterly nature studies by Sandra Kantanen.
