Exhibition together with painter Jarmo Palola in June 2014

“I have been photographing on a field and an allotment nearby my home during this winter 2014.
The ending fall and winter is making all the plants and leaves kneel down on the ground. When the spring is getting near, they persistently get up again. It tells me about life and it’s power, the originality of the plants, and the order of the nature. I’m interested in the code that is in the plants and seeds. It makes the rebirth possible every time again and again.

My feelings have been disconsolate, and I don’t know if I have this order of the nature inside me anymore, that makes me lift my head again after cold and indifferent surrounding.
I don’t know if I will stay forever down on the ground, like the kneeling plants before the strike of coldness. Usually, I’m very sure of myself. Now I’m not that sure anymore.
