Photography is one of the most successful items of cultural export in Finland. Now, for the first time, the internationally acknowledged artists are gathered together in one extensive book accompanying an exhibition travelling around the world. The Helsinki School presents works from over thirty different artists who have been studying or teaching at TaiK, the University of Art and Design in Helsinki. The goal is to introduce a new approach to where photography is in Finland today. Based on a concept by Timothy Persons and Jorma Puranen the amply illustrated volume presents an astounding overview.

Premium books that are produced in close collaboration with artists and curators, ‘shaped by tradition and avant-garde from all over the world’.
