CLOSED The Finnish Museum of Photography: Jari Silomäki
THE FINNISH MUSEUM OF PHOTOGRAPHY: JARI SILOMÄKI - ATLAS OF EMOTIONS
25.9.2020–6.1.2021, The Finnish Museum of Photography, Large exhibition space, Cable Factory
The photographic series Atlas of Emotions by Jari Silomäki is a record of 21st century events: the rapid rise in prosperity and inequality in developing countries, the shared server-run home country that is the Internet, the public presentation of personal histories and privacy protection, and the effects of European political populism on the lives of individuals.
The focal point of Silomäki's work has for two decades been the positioning of the individual within the societal narrative of the times. Through subtle and private stories, he shows us the true faces of grand geopolitical twists and turns using narrative documentary photography, intimately coupled with textual expression.
