Laatikkomo Project: six degrees of photography

A true honor to be a part of the Laatikkomo Project in Jyväskylä, Finland. My exhibition will be the 17th of September to the 8th of October.

My interview

"Laatikkomo can be translated into English as “Box Gallery”, and as its name suggests, it is a large, outdoor, glassed-in, box-frame in Jyväskylä, Finland. The intention of this project/gallery is to present an accurate, worldwide cross section of photography today.

According to the theory of the Hungarian writer, Frigyes Karinthy, and proven by American psychologist, Stanley Milgram, we are able to know everyone in the world, through 6 people (six degrees of separation).

Laatikkomo is an artist run project/gallery. In 2013 we received some funding from the local art councils and foundations to start a 3- year project and we just received a new grant to extend the project another 2-3 years! The project began with six photographers from the six continents. We initially presented one image for 2 weeks but  for this second period we will show one image from each artist for three weeks and rotate between the links. We began with Europe 1 - Asia 2 - Australia 3- Africa 4 - South America 5 - North America 6and then repeat through that order with different artists from different places" --Laatikkomo
