Mikko is an easily approachable, smiling native of Oulu. He enjoys photographing people at work and produces video narratives. Mikko loves minimalism, rhythm and lines in pictures where colour contrasts add spice – and sugar. The picture should surprise!
Mikko often finds passion in emptiness. When everything redundant has been stripped away and the picture's message has been well designed, there is room left for creativity. Abstractness and architecture also fascinate Mikko, who likes to structure and refine his pictures to give them aesthetic appeal.
Mikko balances his work with all sorts of exercise, yoga and meditation as well as playing games. What's more, he regularly swaps his camera for a set of drumsticks!
