Pasi Orrensalo

Germany, Cologne Mirko Mayer Gallery / m-projects

Pasi Orrensalo (FI, 1969) is a storyteller. He uses photography to tell stories that are filtered through his distinctive view on life. Pasi´s photographs show a world that is full of humour, joy and feelings. Instead of editing his photographs, Orrensalo lets the story take the centre stage. As the projects are shut during long period of time, the stories grow and the plots diversify. Like all good storytellers, Orrensalo also feels that the most important objective of his work is to raise people´s feelings and emotions. Life is full of passion and humour – when viewed from the right angle.
