New York-based Finnish photographer captures the sensuality of Finnish architect and designer Alvar Aalto’s masterpieces in their shared hometown, Jyväskylä, in a new exhibition taking place in The Consulate General of Finland in New York.
Surrounded by lakes and forests in the heart of Central Finland, the Jyväskylä region creates the backdrop for the series of photographs by Finnish photographer Janne Tuunanen. After years of working in New York City, Tuunanen shifts his focus back to his former hometown, known for the exceptional heritage of modern architecture by the renowned Finnish architect and designer Alvar Aalto. The resulting series provides a unique and unexpected perspective on Aalto’s architecture – the precise composition and insightful angles draw the viewer’s attention to exquisite details often left out of images in architecture books and magazines.
The exhibition is presented by The Consulate General of Finland in New York, The Embassy of Finland in Washington, D.C., and The Finnish Cultural Institute in New York, in collaboration with Alvar Aalto Foundation.
Open Monday-Friday by appointment, please check the website for more details.
