This exhibition, Distant Lands, posits that Western materialism suffers from a lack of space for mystique, the things in life that seem to exist outside of the hard concrete of that we understand. So as a remedy it provides the work of Finnish photographer, poet and artist Pentti Sammallahti. Sammallahti has a talent for capture the nature’s seemingly supernatural power and force, his photographs taking us inside the worlds of wild spaces. “These kinds of powerful artworks remind us of the mystery of existence”, says the exhibition’s producer Emilie Ackerman.
