Santeri Tuori “Video and Photography 1998-2003” is a catalogue published on the occasion of an exhibition featuring superimposed images, silver gelatine prints, video installations and mixed audio-visual works, Despite the friendly and funny faces that form the subjects of most the works, there is something wonderfully uncanny about these works; portraits that appear to come alive, a video of a man (the artist himself) holding a smile for over 30 minutes and spectral silver gelatine prints, some blurred and faded, reminiscent of the earliest experiments in photography; many reproduced images of the works and the exhibition space accompanied by short descriptions, with an English text by Taru Elfving.
