Photogs / Photo Exhibits This is the place to discuss a particular Photographer (work, style, life, whatever), as well as to post Gallery and Museum Photo Exhibitions and your own impressions of them. As we march on in this new digital world, it is often too easy to forget about the visual importance of the photographic print, as well as their financial importance to the photographer. It is also interesting to remember that some guy named Gene Smith shot with lenses that many lens test reading "never had a picture published in their life" amateurs would turn up their their noses at, as being "unacceptable."

A friend pointed me to this photographer. Some of his work is very amusing.

His book “Here far away” is one of the best books of photography published this century. Sammallahti is incredibly accomplished; his vision and technical capacity are astounding.

Forgot how I stumbled across him, but bought the "Here far away" book when it was released and then saw some prints at the Photographers Gallery...
Very impressive

His retrospective at Kaapelitehdas in Helsinki was an amazing exhibition, immaculate prints. His book "Here Far Away" is the most beautiful thing I own.

Greatly underrated artist.

Also seems like a great person, here's a small write-up on this photo https://www.theguardian.com/artandde...-russia-winter

I seem to remember Here Far Away was photo book of the year a few years ago - which was how I learnt of him. It's one of my favourite photo books. Stunning photos and great reproduction. If you can find a copy I'd highly recommend it!
