Here Far Away
Photographs From the Years 1964-2011Book - 2012
"This retrospective covers more than forty years of work and unfolds in almost as many countries. Pentti Sammallahti is a wanderer who makes subtle observations of the people and animals he encounters. He records the ordinary and in that ordinariness finds the 'wondrous' and 'beautiful.' Sammallahti is recognized as a master craftsman both in terms of the photographic print and also in mechanical printing methods -- he has been a major influence on published photographic art. He has had an enormous influence on a generation of photographers in Scandinavia and, since 1979, has published thirteen books and portfolios and received innumerable awards"--Amazon.com, viewed December 3, 2013.
