Expanding the boundaries of the photographic process: Niko Luoma shows all of the things that light can do

An interesting exponent of the Helsinki School

Niko Luoma (*1970 in Helsinki) produces some of the most unusual work in contemporary Finnish photography. His fascinating, abstract compositions are not digitally processed, but purely analog, created through multiple exposures. Luoma’s theme and material is light, and as far as form is concerned, he is interested in process, repetition, and the serial. Inspired by mathematics and geometry, Luoma uses traces of light to create overwhelmingly charismatic images.

The artist has worked on most of his astonishingly diverse series for years: in Symmetrium, for example, thousands of individual exposures form a single negative, while in Kairos, drawings of motifs that embody Aristotle’s “opportune moment” are the basis for structures in which Luoma attempts to translate the ephemeral into the eternal.
