Timo Kelaranta
The House of Poets

The House of Poets presents photographs by Timo Kelaranta from the past five years. The energy of the magical pictures derives from a combination of play and experimentation that sometimes contains echoes of surrealism. Kelaranta works with found materials, such as metal, plastic and paper, thereby giving the photographs a new, poetic dimension. Most of the photographs in the book are from a recent series on the theme of paper as material. The geometric shapes of a circle, ellipse or drop are repeated in the pictures, yet emptiness also plays an important role, making the pictures approach the boundary between the material and the immaterial, thus adding to them an element of silence and timelessness.
Finnish photographer Timo Kelaranta (b. 1951) has worked as a photographic artist since the mid-1970s. He has served twice as Professor
of Photography at the University of Art and Design Helsinki (currently Aalto University).
