Dear friend of Arkadia,

 

You are extremely welcome to visit the bookshop to have a look at the exquisitely beautiful nature photographs of Charlotte Elo! They were shot during the winters of 2007, 2008 and 2009 in Loviisa (southern coast of Finland) and in Helsinki.

The exhibition lasts from 16.2 to 6.3. Come when you can!

The bookshop is open every week day from 12:00 to 20:00 and on Saturday from 10:00 to 18:00.

 

Warm regards,

 

Ian

  

Here are a few words by written by Charlotte herself:

 

I was born in Kotka in 1984 and moved to Helsinki in 2000 to study here. I took up photography as a hobby about three years ago after I had inherited a Canon AV-1. Looking back at my first shots, it seems I had already found my niche: catching nature-made patterns on film. Ice as material has become a source of inspiration for me, but unfortunately it isn’t easy to find any during these mild Finnish winters. This exhibition will be the first time I show my pictures in public. I have a master’s degree in German and English philology from the University of Helsinki and work as a language teacher at Munksnäs högstadieskola in Helsinki.
