I am a Finnish photojournalist and street photographer studying in Oxford. I spend my free time taking pictures for Cherwell, the local student newspaper as well as on doing my personal work on the streets of Oxford, Washington DC or wherever I happen to be. In my photography I strive for spontaneity and capturing meaningful moments that tell a story to the viewer. I have a strong aversion to staged pictures because I believe they fail to penetrate the true essence of a subject. This is my portfolio website This blog is my sketchbook where I try out images and show my most recent work. Please notice that all of my images are copyrighted (even the earlier ones without a watermark) and that you have no right of using any of them without my explicit permission. However, I am more than happy for any of these images to be used in publications as long as I get fair compensation.
