This series of works on Japanese rice paper began slowly in 2013 after I got back from Nairobi, Kenya. It has coincided with my zen-practice and I see my this series as a continued contemplative artistic practice. None of these works has ever been shown in private shows, but many of the works in this ongoing series have found their ways to private collections all around the world.
The Origins (2015–2020) presents a compelling argument that human imagination and art was evolved due to ancient art of persistence hunting (running and tracking down animals). The principal cinematography was executed among the Ju/‘hoan hunter-gatherers at the Nyae Nyae Conservancy in the Kalahari desert in Namibia and among the Ráramuri of the Mexican Sierra Madre.
This series of works on paper was started in Nairobi, Kenya in May 2013, where the works were shown together with Andries Fourie (USA) and Nicky Marais (Namibia).

I went out running from Helsinki to Jyväskylä on the midsummers eve in 2016 with an intention of getting there in time to open my photography exhibition a week later. The exhibition would consist of photographs taken along my route depicting the Finnish countryside in its full glory.
I was involved making drawings, films, animations and photograps for the stage adaptation of the “When the Doves Disappeared” a novel by Sofi Oksanen. It is a story of occupation, resistance, and collaboration in Estonia during and after World War II. The play premiered in 2013.
This was a collaboration between myself and fashion designer and film-maker Paola Suhonen in 2012.
I was deeply involved making works with new digital mediums between 2009–2011. These works are descriptions of perception and the attempt to capture perception as it is felt with digital madium cabable capturing light and fleeting moments.
While living in New York City in 2003 I began to break up from Photography and ventured into painting and objects. This collection of works from 2003–2006 involve captures from my life, simple and childlike abstractions and ridiculous conceptual ideas.
