Santeri Tuori is a multifaceted artist who has been engaging with the properties of nature and its power of change over the past two decades. Forests, skies, lilies, and wind are only some of the basic elements you might find in any Nordic landscape, and all become items of Tuori’s interest and observation. After finding a specific location, he photographs it from the same position, season after season, over many years. He then layers the images one on top of the other, sometimes superimposing a black-and-white negative with the colored ones to create his own unique compositions of "time being.”
Santeri Tuori was born in Espoo, Finland, in 1970. He lives and works in Helsinki. He received a Master of Law degree from the University of Helsinki in 1999, and obtained Bachelor (2000) and Master of Arts (2003) degrees in photography at Aalto University School of Arts, Design and Architecture. Solo and group exhibitions since 1997 have continuously shown his works in numerous countries in Europe, North and South America, Russia, East Asia, and Africa. His works are included a.o. in the collections of the Espoo Museum of Modern Art, the Finnish Museum of Photography, the FRAC Haute-Normandie, the Malmø Art Museum, and the Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, as well as numerous private collections worldwide.
