84 ARTIST PROFILE Marika Pentikainen

MyTo Hong Kong, 2019, photography, 40 x 65 cm

Marika Pentikainen

C

aptured through her unique viewpoint, Marika Pentikainen photographs emotions. Her portraits are human landscapes, focused on the small gestures of human interactions – sometimes loud, wild and free, at other times quiet and contemplative - each image exploring the person within and allowing them to simply be as they are. The people she photographs are a constant inspiration, especially the parts of a person which can’t be easily seen such as human destinies, relationships, tensions, thoughts and feelings. She is intrigued by the human mind’s

range of emotions, and whether shooting in a studio setting or on location it is always her intention to convey what is felt in the moment; be it happiness and love, or sadness, longing and hate. Pentikainen lives between Singapore, US and Finland, using photography as her visual medium to write the world for people to see; her work is a wordless, creative and passionate form of communication between people and different perspectives. photosmarik.com marika@photosmarik.com
