Two Photographers of Pause

Penntti Sammallahti, Soloviki, White Sea, Russia, 1992

There are two photographers that I’ve been looking at as of late, Joel Sternfeld, and Pentti Sammallahti.

I find their work striking, ordinary, human, humane, and images of  life situated in a bigger picture we find ourselves in.  There also seems to be clearly a deliberate and patient act of looking, and waiting for them to find their pictures.

I encourage you to simply take time to look at what they’ve found.  Their images are quite engaging.
