With his latest project, ‘Notes on Places’, Kimmo Metsäranta brings a new perspective to the everyday landscape of Helsinki. Kimmo focuses on the buildings usually overlooked by tourists who pass them by on their way to the must-see places. Struck by their colour, shape, or texture, Metsäranta creates pastel andminimalist photographs that reveal the charm and grandeur of the otherwise mundane structures.

 

The photographer states: “With the series I wanted to add a few more spots to the list from the everyday scenery. These new spots are in plain sight but unseen to most. The city is full of attractions if one chooses to look around. The minimalist images are modified abstractions detached from their original surroundings in order to make the places and objects monumental-like attractions.”

Ocean Vuong - Eurydice

It’s more like the sound
a doe makes
when the arrowhead
replaces the day
with an answer to the rib’s
hollowed hum. We saw it coming
but kept walking through the hole
in the garden. Because the leaves
were bright green & the fire
only a pink brushstroke
in the distance. It’s not
about the light—but how dark
it makes you depending
on where you stand.
Depending on where you stand
his name can appear like moonlight
shredded in a dead dog’s fur.
His name changed when touched
by gravity. Gravity breaking
our kneecaps just to show us
the sky. We kept saying Yes—
even with all those birds.
Who would believe us
now? My voice cracking
like bones inside the radio.
Silly me. I thought love was real
& the body imaginary.
But here we are—standing
in the cold field, him calling
for the girl. The girl
beside him. Frosted grass
snapping beneath her hooves.
