Persons Projects | Helsinki School is very pleased to announce the upcoming show Shadows Within with Eeva Karhu.


Eeva Karhu uses the photographic process as her receptor for collecting the passage of time. This is most evident in her ongoing 'Path' series, where she photographs her same daily walking route from her home. By compiling and layering one photograph upon another, she eventually creates an image of what one month would look like. Karhu continues this process throughout the year, creating her own visual calendar of time periods based upon the harvesting of light from one moment to the next. In her Path (Seasons) series, Karhu expands this composition by combining three months into a single image to form one season. These images become far more abstract, yet still have the feeling and look of an impressionistic painting from another century. It’s as if she is painting with light. Her spring looks like Monet and her autumn contains the colours of Renoir and her tones are like those of Turner.

The opening of the exhibition ‘Shadows Within’ will include the presentation of the new publication by Eeva Karhu: Polku | Path, Parvs 2020. For more information about Eeva Karhu's publication please click here.
