VB photographic center, Kuopio

  • 1.3.2024–26.5.2024

Sanna Kannisto has photographed the diversity of nature's species for twenty years. Resting Site exhibition features photographic works from 2014-2023.


Sanna Kannisto (b. 1974) has photographed the diversity of natures species for twenty years. Over the years Kannisto has developed a unique pictorial expression that combines nature photography, the pivotal questions of fine art photography and the scientific way of presenting nature.

Kannisto often works closely together with biologists reflecting the interface between art and science. She does not only study characteristics of different species but also the codes of scientific visualisation. Her own position as an operator, experiencer and a researcher is also questioned. The field studio she has developed functions as a laboratory but also as a stage for photographic processes.

Kannistos works have an undertone of the strong need for personal expressive narration. The concern of the state of nature and the decrease of bird and insect species is an important subject for the artist. Through the visually beautiful images, Kannisto seeks for an emotional reaction in the viewers that can also have an effect in attitudes.

Resting Site exhibition features Sanna Kannistos photographic works from 2014-2023, as well as three videos and a documentary film about her work.
