Sini Pelkki

Work composed entirely of still photography (35mm), moving inside four single photographs. From detail to landscape opens up a figure in the middle of a wintery landscape. With the subtle play of shadow and light, the day turns into night turning the figure and its surrounding into a silhouette.
