'If anything, my work is about distance from the world.
So that we might see more clearly, we must often take a step back. Now, on the outside we are able to perceive. The tragedy of it is that we cannot reach what we see but stay on the outside, looking in.
The same tragedy is at the heart of photography, for the world remains separate and unknown, and cannot be contained within a photograph, despite its apparent truthfulness to nature.
It is the strangeness of both, our existence and the world, that is at the heart of my work.'
I am a Finnish photographer and writer based in London.
