Copyright 2015 Aapo Huhta

Photographer: Aapo Huhta (born & resides Finland)

Publisher: Kehrer Verlag (Germany)

Essay: Jenny Hollowell

Text: English

Hardcover book, folded text insert, sewn binding, four-color lithography, printed in Germany

Photobook designer: Aapo Huhta & Heikki Kaski

Notes: The context of Huhta photographs is ambiguous, obviously investigating a stark, urban landscape, although stated to be New York City; it could be any large megalopolis. The photographs are almost monochromatic, devoid of any color and providing an overall somber grayness to his subject. In the process of investigating a place, Huhta finds haunting touchstones that speak to the potential isolation and disassociation that can linger in a crowded, yet foreign, urban space.
