About

Claire Aho (b. 1925, Finland) is a pioneer of Finnish colour photography. This will be the first exhibition of Aho's work outside of Finland. Grandchild of the author Juhani Aho and the painter Venny Soldan-Brofeldt, Aho established her own commercial studio in the early 1950s working across a broad range of industries including editorial, advertising, magazine covers and fashion. The exhibition will include a large selection of original Finnish lifestyle magazines with Aho's cover photographs and up to seventy images from her archive. Saturated with colour and full of humor her images, although distinct to Finland and to the period, still remain relevant to young practitioners today.
