Pentti Sammalhati in Rome

Helsinki,-Finland,-1982_Pentti-Sammallahti_aSometimes we just need good photography to tour the World. If you’re in the eternal city, I can recommend you CEMBALO GALLERY, where there’s now a wonderful exhibition by Pentti Sammalhati.

From the official gallery’s website:  Defined, among other things, as “the photographic music of an animal lover” Sammallahti’s work surprises and fascinates for the amazing ability to blend the extreme accuracy of the composition with the inscrutable laws of fate.


Animals, people, landscapes, glimpses of nature and cities that all add up to a visual symphony capable of grasping, with a black and white crisp narrative power, true unique moments described with intensity, irony, sometimes even comedy.
There are more than 150 works of various sizes (from 9×12 to 60×90 cm) on display at the Galleria del Cembalo and they constitute a broad overview of the work of one of the protagonists of contemporary photography: photos that show with conviction and genius how describing nature is, each time, also an opportunity of describing ourselves.
Qui, altrove will also be the occasion to present the book of the same name published by Peliti Associati: the only retrospective volume of Pentti Sammallahti’s work, cured in every detail by the very photographer, whose value is recognized in all countries in which it was published – France, Spain, United Kingdom, Germany and Finland.


About Odile Milton

I travel through words whenever possible. Odile Milton is my signature on the web as I wanted an alter ego to indicate only my writings and works, not my personal life. Odile like the dancer in black swan, and Milton from the novel An old-fashioned girl. View all posts by Odile Milton
