Claire Aho: Studio Works

Delving into the minds eye of Finnish photographer’s first solo show at London’s Photographers’ Gallery is like a coy peep show into Finish life in the 1950’s and ‘60s. Inspired by the world of advertising with fashion flair this is MAD MEN Finnish style. Although retro influenced, the end result of Claire’s research and work is very much contemporary and relevant to today’s culture style hunters. The colour and fashion references of suburban life as sourced in the curated lifestyle magazines of the time has inspired her work of still lives and studio portraits with glimpses of studio sets, lighting gear and colour charts. It’s a delicate exhibition of an artists passion for what’s normal and everyday. No gloss or airbrushing here…

The exhibition is on till July 21 at:

Photographers’ Gallery

16-18 Ramillies St.
