BIOGRAPHY
email: robie @ weretco.net ---- I'm a Nordic creative photographer from Finland. I work in monochrome only and do a very narrow field of abstract and artistic nude photography. I photograph women, couples and men using 6x7cm medium format equipment. Downtown Helsinki is also another passionate subject, my hometown. Recently I've added experiments in the 4x5 inch format. My photography is not a commercial endeavour, it is part of my creative interest. The project started in 1997 is continuous. One objective is to publish a book after ten years of photography or later. My work has been recurringly displayed publicly in the cities of Helsinki, Joensuu and Tampere and also abroad Austria and USA. Some of my photographs are in private and public collections, also as music disc cover art and tour posters. The pictures do not contain any message. The meaning of the picture is created, or simply dismissed by the viewer. Technically the photography is simple and ascetic always monochrome, low and surrounding light and no flash. I intend to capture the natural picture and moment in full frame, without the need of further cropping. I also try to achieve a sense of depth a third dimension, in the two dimensional photograph using shadows and very slight depth of focus. The fourth dimension hidden in the picture is that I know and feel the story behind the picture not discernible by you, the viewer.
