Purdy Hicks Gallery is delighted to announce a solo exhibition of the works of Finnish photographer, Santeri Tuori (born 1970, Finland). With his photographs and films Tuori has found away to make the landscape genre come alive.
Over the last seven years he has spent much time on the remote island of Kökar in the Åland archipelago making the Forest series. Tuori photographs the same place, from the same spot, over and over again at different times and seasons, sometimes years apart. Multiple images, both black and white and colour, are then superimposed. The process is similar for the moving images from the Forest series: they are the result of layering, colour video with black and white photographs. This gives the films the clarity and richness of a photograph combined with the movement and time of a video.
