Works to Live By

Photograph by Pentti Sammallahti

Every once in a while I stumble on some photographic gems by a photographer I am not familiar with. When these images entertain, inform, or inspire me sufficiently I thought it might be a good idea to recommend their work to readers of my blog. Just this week I discovered the work of Finnish photographer Pentti Sammallahti and really enjoyed it. His style is quite varied; many of his images are emotionally evocative but my favorites are the ones where he takes advantages of subtle or not so subtle compositional oddities or quirks in an imaginative way. His photos involving animals are particularly pleasing. You can see his work here. Look especially at the three galleries labeled simply “Photographs.”]]>

I don’t know how her photo came out but that’s about the most elegant way to hold a camera I think I’ve ever seen.
