In search of lost paradise

In Twisted Tales—Road to Hope, Markus Henttonen (*1976 in Lahti, Finland) takes us with him on a journey. His impressive road movie leads us through a land that is like life itself: in atmospheric photographs he shows us everyday situations that apparently came about by chance, or very personal experiences, tags of memories from the past, and dream-like sequences. And emotions always filter through—joy, boredom, pain, confusion, perhaps hope?

After early, more documentary series, Henttonen has discovered his intriguing narrative style in his recent works. Some of the fantastic images in Twisted Tales have a far-reaching, staged character, like film sets; others pose questions, remain mysterious. This becomes particularly evident in his pictures of a sign on the gate of the estate of the famous comedian Bob Hope: “This road does not lead to Bob Hope’s house. ‘Bob is dead.’”
