Kalle Kataila: Landscapes and Contemplations


When reviewing the book 'reGeneration²' from Aperture earlier this year, I noticed the mysterious photograph by Kalle Kataila. Investigating further I discovered this ethereal body of work that engulfed me and took me on a journey across the world and through time. Kalle is "a Helsinki-based photographer whose work is based around concepts of landscape and how personal narratives attribute to our understandings of these spaces." Born in 1977, Kalle is young yet thoroughly well collected and exhibited - across Europe, in the US, China, Russia and Korea, both as part of the reGeneration² touring show and independently, and with work in the Finnish State Art Collections, Museé de l'Elysée in Lausanne and more. He's also a member of the impressive Helsinki School.

The reGeneration² exhibition travels to Milan in November and comes to New York in January 2011.
