Artist talk this Saturday at Fotografiets Dag / Photography Day 2021

As part of Fotografiets Dag / Photography Day 2021, Eyes as Big as Plates is invited to give an artist talk at Preus Museum in Horten in Norway. We look forward to sharing field notes, process images and snippets from the upcoming book, along with our favourite tips on how to best approach strangers, where to go (and where not to go) hunting for beach cabbage, and how to shoot with medium format cameras in all weather conditions.

Eyes as Big as Plates in residence // New York!

Eyes as Big as Plates’ new headquarters for the next two months will be the Intercourse at 159 Pioneer Street in Redhook. Generously hosted by Recess Session, our studio will be welcoming visitors, participants and curious New Yorkers. On display in the studio will be photographs from Finland and Norway, as well as costumes  and new works in progress. We are currently recruiting models for our upcoming photo shoots in and around the city. Please get in touch if you would like to participate!

Alongside the Recess Session, Riitta Ikonen and I are also taking part in Lower Manhattan Cultural Council‘s residency program ‘Seniors Partnering with Artists Citywide’ (SPARC), collaborating with Alison Kuo, Yue Lin and the wonderful people of the City Hall Senior Center.

A very own Eyes as Big as Plates blog has been launched for the occasion, check in for frequent updates throughout the residency!
