Saku Soukka's primary tool in art-making is photography, which he often combines in different ways with text, sound, video and installation. In his works, through many kinds of sub-themes, identity emerges as the main theme. His creations reflect concepts of the self and otherness as well as hybridity. Encounters and dialogues between the internal and external, stagnation and movement as well as organic and industrial are present. The atmosphere in the artworks is often autobiographical and they have been presented for example in Soul in "EMAP 2016" (9th Ewha international Media Art Presentation) -exhibition and in "Tent Academy Awards 2014" -exhibition in Rotterdam. Soukka has been working as an assistant of photography artist Esko Männikkö, studied journalistic photography in West Lapland Vocational Institute and completed Master of Fine Arts degree in the Finnish Academy of Fine Arts. Now he is living and working in Helsinki.
