BIOGRAPHY
Hi! I´m glad you have become to watch my portfolio. I´m Ilkka Kallio, living in Kerava. I was born in 1955. In my younger ages I tried to put into practice my visual expression through painting and drawing but wasn´t never satisfied with the result. About at the age of 25 I acquired my first systems camera and started to photograph mostly the nature. There were a lot of changes in my life later and put photographing aside for a long period of time. After years I met choreographer-dancer Anne Jouhtinen and our co-operation started during her celebration performance of 20 years which I photographed. Very soon after that we realised that we had a common interest; to bring forth something valuable and good from the past. Nowadays we are all living in a hectically changing world of globalization and integration. Some of us don´t necessarily know anymore who they are and where they are coming from. Since 2006 we have been working with a project photographing mystic female figures related mostly to Finnish mythology. In the past Finland has been called as "Terra Feminarum" and strong female figures has been in close contact with our historical and mythical heritage. We work in a close relationship as a duo; Jouhtinen is a model and a costume designer as well as a poet and storyteller for the photos. You are welcome to visit our homepage which is the forum for our co-operation (www.cra-company.com) in order to get acquainted with us and our work. The mythic female figures are based on "Kalevala" which is a Finnish Odysseia, our national epic. We want to give people of today a moment with the past, a touch of mystic, a possibility to find peace in the middle of the hurry. I´m very happy to be related to the photographers all around the world. It´s nice to get response and to see your magnificent photos from your own country. Be well, Ilkka Kallio
