Fine Art Friday: Perttu Saksa - "A Kind Of You" Series

Perttu Saksa  is a visual artist and photographer whose recent series called "A Kind of You" exhibits monkeys in masks in dramatic lighting that is both expertly done and depressing in a good way (to me anyway). It is amazing to me how much emotion Saksu can pull from the animals in their various poses. Check it out and realize that your concepts of how we interact with nature as humans can transform with a single photograph. He graduated in fine arts from the Finnish Academy of Fine Arts and from photography from the Lahti University of Applied Science. Currently Perttu is working on his PhD in fine arts at Aalto University in Helsinki.
