I am quite excited as 4 weeks of photography and 2 weeks of preparations are culminating in the opening of my spring 2010 photo Exhibition Where the Rainbow Sleeps which opens on May 7th and is open throughout the month of May, 2010.

If you live in or near Helsinki, Finland (or are visiting town) just call me on +358 (0)50 540 9609 and I will gladly give you a walk-through of the exhibition photos. Photos are on display in a cozy bar situated along the tourist tram 3T/3B route, only 15-20min from the absolute downtown Helsinki.

Although these web-sized files do not give credit to the prints which are 60x90cm in size, here is the total number of photos, some of which have been picked for the exhibition:

Some quick posts as well







I will also make a book containing about 60-80 of these photos, focusing on documenting the doors and windows in Mexico. Prints for sale Worldwide, give me a PM and I will make you an Mflenses member offer.

Thank you everyone!

Lots of eggs in this basket, goal is to break even ie. pay for prints, flights and accomodation costs. The rest is bonus (read: paying the bills) Laughing

This is such a great forum; inhabited by people with deep artistic eye always backed up with solid technical knowledge. Your support, coming from such an esteemed group of colleagues all over the world, I value higher than I can find words to express it with.

Thank you, sincerely, everyone.

UPDATE: The exhibition catalogue is now available as full-screen preview. It contains over 80 images, some 20 of which are on display in the exhibition. Never mind the title and two text pages in Finnish, it contains 78 pages of photos as it is a catalogue for ordering prints.

Cheers for all the cheers! It's been great to read visitor book greetings from Mflenses members Cool

Exhibition is on until end of May, and one more Mflenses member is visiting later today. I'll be there at about 5:30 to 7:30 today, in case someone wants to drop by as well.

Porvoonkatu 19, in Alppila area of Helsinki.

I visited the exhibition yesterday. The photos were very colourful and looked great printed large.

I also had a long chat with Vilhelm about his photos and printing techniques and about the photography as a means of living...

Thank You Vilhelm and Best of luck!

I would like to thank everyone who had the opportunity to visit and sign the guestbook. The bar owners were very pleased saying that the exhibition had brought new clients in numbers that far exceeded what they wished for.

The next exhbition is going to be smaller, but in a more central location - Simonkatu and Lasipalatsi in August. The space is called Akkuna, it is the small stonefoot shop on Simonkatu side, and it is the location where Flow Festival is going to have their ticket office for 1 week in early August.

Before that happens, it is time to move forward and do what's been something of a dream of mine for long now - together with two other photographers we are opening a gallery on Iso Roobertinkatu. More news and photos coming later Smile
