Santeri Tuori – ‘Forest’

Santeri Tuori – the ‘Forest‘ series: captivating time with refined aesthetics.

For the ‘Forest’ project Tuori photographed the same place, from the same spot, over and over again at different times and seasons, sometimes years apart. Multiple images, both black and white and colour, are then superimposed. Likewise, the moving images from the ‘Forest’ series are the result of layering: colour video with black and white photographs. This gives the films the clarity and richness of a photograph combined with the movement and time of a video.(Purdy Hicks Gallery review)

Santeri Tuori – Forest

 

Moved by the sensory force and elegance of ‘Forest’ are we actually in a forest?  The forest is meticulously brought to the viewer and the forest is made to disappear; the forest is powerfully present and radically absent. Surplus forest, reduced forest. We are and we are not in the forest (Jan-Erik Lundström)
