Jorma Puranen

 

Contemporary European Photography

JormaPuranen.jpg “In his most recent series of works entitled ‘Icy Prospects’, Jorma Puranen […] painted a piece of wooden board himself with black, glossy alkyd paint, took it outdoors in winter and photographed the fragmentary reflection of nature on the surface of the board. The result was a series of extremely painterly, painting-like, works, in which the brushstrokes and the uneven features of the board are mixed with the reflected subject.”
