The Journey of A. R. Minkkinen - September 17 up to October 30

Arno Rafael Minkkinen

The Journey of A. R. Minkkinen - September 17 up to October 30

The first solo show in Germany by the international reknowned photographer Arno Rafael Minkkinen.

Arno Rafael Minkkinen is known for his black and white abstract pieces which juxtapose bodies and landscapes in surprising ways: he "directs scenes in which his body - or a portion of it - appears as an integral part of the landscape - such as an outcropping or rock formation".

Minkkinen was born in Helsinki, Finland in 1945. After his family moved to the United States, Minkkinen graduated from Wagner College in 1967 with a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature, and from Rhode Island School of Design where he studied with Harry Callahan and Aaron Siskind with a Master of Fine Arts in Photography. After teaching for a few years at M.I.T. Minkkinen is now a Full Professor at the University of Massachusetts Lowel.

Minkkinen's work is included in over 55 major museum/institutional collections including the Helsinki Museum of Photography, and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
