Laura Konttinen, born 1987 in Finland, uses photography not only as a medium but also as a raw material and a subject. Her work revolves around taking photographs apart. Instead of digital effects, she plays analogue tricks on the camera by carefully crafting surreal compositions out of cut-up images and discarded materials. Konttinen graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Visual Art in 2010 and is currently studying for a master’s degree in Photography at Aalto University, Helsinki. Her works have been shown in exhibitions in Finland and abroad, and in the fall of 2018, she will be participating in the group exhibition fin.land. at the Finnish Museum of Photography.
