Kaisa Sirén abstract photographs of the mindscapes of the arctic year

Photography studio Villa Vinkkeli will now open also as a gallery. To celebrate the one year anniversary of the studio Kaisa Sirén has set up a colour themed exhibition. The photos have been taken mostly in past summer and winter in Finnish and Norwegian Lapland. In her artistic photography Sirén has been focusing on abstract, minimalist methods that still contain narratives.


Kaisa sees and notices the light: ”When I wake up in the morning I have a clear vision of the day’s color.” The cruel cold tones of the polar night and the warm soft glow of midnight sun have been captured with the camera as the pictures of dreams and abstractions of dusk, to bring feelings of peace and timelessness.


Sirén’s first exhibition 12 years ago was also abstract, but that passion has been hibernating a long time. Now the new studio Villa Vinkkeli has helped it to re-emerge and wake up. “My day job as a press photographer has strict guidelines and is very representative and documentative. It’s very freeing to do the completely opposite thing on my free time”, Kaisa says.



Kaisa Sirén graduated with a photography degree from the Ryerson Polytechnical Institute in Toronto. Canada. After moving to Lapland, she worked many years in tourism with photography on hold. Sirén also got to thoroughly know Lapland, its people and vast areas, and the best lights and sites for taking photos. Sirén returned to professional photography in 2004.
