Petri Virtanen, Finland (September-November 2011)

Ever since I was a child, I was fascinated by very strong visual and sonic impulses; I loved comic-books and movies, mainly horror, fantasy, science-fiction, western, all kinds of good action. Then I got into painting, photography, videos, and drifted more towards the so called `art world`.

My photography exhibitions so far have been mostly staged horror photos, full of surrealistic twists and turns. I usually discuss the ideas with the models, think of the props, make-ups, locations, and we try to make a good drama-filled performance together!
