PAVE MAIJANEN: Kuva & Valo (Picture & Light)

Mikkeli Centre of Photography

In the autumn of 2020, Pave Maijanen wrote the foreword to his exhibition:

My exhibition contains pictures e.g. from the dunes of the southern tip of Gran Canaria, where the wind makes the sand ripple like water. There are also pictures from the flea markets on that island, a few pictures are of my grandchildren and the rest are without a special theme.

In the summer of 2020, I held the first photo exhibition of my life in Keslahti, curated by photographic artist Stefan Bremer. He has been a great help in these projects. Steffe has made all the prints and he was with me choosing the pictures to display.

The title of the exhibition Picture and Light comes from the fact that I never use flash light, but natural light is something that is interesting to play with.

Pekka Juhani Pave Maijanen (19502021) is known for his extensive career as a musician. During his career, he worked as a singer, songwriter, bassist, drummer, keyboardist, guitarist and producer. Less well known is his work as a photographer. Organizing his own photo exhibition was one of his last wishes.
