"Nous deux" exhibition

The Camera Obscura Gallery presents the exhibition Nous deux by Pentti Sammallahti and Kristoffer Albrecht, which celebrates a forty-year friendship between the two Finnish photographers.

Kristoffer Albrecht met Pentti Sammallahti in 1982 and it was under his guidance that he learned the historical methods of printing (notably platinum palladium). This practical teaching led to a friendship and collaboration that quickly went beyond the academic relationship between teacher and student.

Both passionate about reproduction and printing techniques, they bought a small offset press in Pentti Sammallahti's cellar where they spent many nights working.

The book represents for them a privileged space of technical and aesthetic experimentation, so they have created the Opus collection, which currently counts 74 titles.

The exhibition, inspired by Pentti Sammallahti's latest book, Me Kaksi, published by Atelier EXB, shows two works that share the same high standards, the same humour and the same desire to make the beauty of the world more visible. It shows some images from the book, which talk about attachment, tenderness, the universality of the emotional connection, at last "being in the world together".
