SANNA KANNISTO: SENSE OF WONDER

Kuvaaja: Sanna Kannisto, artwork: Cyanocompsa cyanoides, 2019. Cropped version., artist: Sanna Kannisto
In summer 2020 the Finnish Museum of Photography will exhibit the works of photographer Sanna Kannisto (b. 1974), spanning a period of 20 years.

This will be Kannisto’s largest exhibition to date. Sense of Wonder is a cross-section of the artist’s career, including her long-term photographic work at research stations in rainforests in South America and her more recent project at the Hanko bird observatory. The diverse nature of the rainforest and the migratory birds of the north are a mesmerising part of the exhibited works.

Sanna Kannisto’s work has long been influenced by her collaboration with scientists and her interest in observing nature. Kannisto is, in a way, a scientist-artist who is compiling her own collection. In her work, she explores her role at the research stations working alongside the scientists, the ways in which information can be produced and interpreted and what tradition she is part of. A strong desire for personal, expressive narration is also present in her work. Concern for the state of nature the diminishing number of bird and insect species, for example, is an important subject for the artist. With her visually beautiful photographs, Kannisto strives to elicit an emotional reaction that may also influence the attitudes of her audience.
