An ensemble of street photographers representing different styles creates a visual love letter to Helsinki. Since the ensemble includes photographers from Venezuela, Brazil, Afghanistan and Mexico who have settled in Finland, the exhibition is also an expression of love for multicultural Helsinki.
The exhibition can be found at Keskuskatu near Ateneuminkuja and on the fence of the Kaisaniemi Botanical Garden, in the corner of Unioninkatu and Kaisaniemenranta.
”I love the stories that can be found in a fleeting moment of existence. Going out to shoot with my camera is a truly creative process that brings pure joy. To share that with others is like icing on the cake.”
– Johnny Abdallah
”Streets of Helsinki are the biggest stage where I observe life performing itself. It’s all like an endless dance in my eyes that brings me close to the mystery of every second that comes and flees away in front of my camera. Another name of this mystery is love. And this love that calls me out and takes me with it, is what all my Helsinki photos are about.”
