Of Walking Helsinki


Street Photography Documentary

"Of walking - Helsinki" is created in the context of the peripatetic photography. This is the quiet side of street photography during which attention is given primarily to the state of mind of the photographer and not to the hunting of exceptional phenomena.

Helsinki is the capital, primate, and most populous city of Finland. Located on the shore of the Gulf of Finland, it is the seat of the region of Uusimaa in southern Finland. Helsinki has one of the world's highest standards of urban living.

Peripatetic photography
Peripatetic photography is a good description of my visual working methods that I use, strolling in the urban environment.

An approach to peripatetic photography is the experiential, direct, non-conceptualphotography. For me this is as a form of meditation, wandering as a possibility of emptying the mind as a source of inspiration and creativity. Or just recreational, intuitive photography. 

 This internalization of the attention brings a more sober reading of reality. The editing is a form of non-linear-narrative composition of images. The term "peripatetic" is a transliteration of the ancient Greek word peripatêtikos, which means "of walking" or "given to walking about" or "strolling". The Peripatetic school, is founded by Aristotle who taught philosophy while walking.
