Susanna Majuri


Opening at the end of this month is the exhibition “Saved with water,” by Finnish artist

Susanna Majuri. Galerie Adler will present the work in Majuri’s first solo exhibition in

New York. The artist’s photographs are rooted in narritive and usually depict an interaction between subject and landscape. When speaking of her work the artist has stated, “I follow the logic of colours when I combine places, people and clothes. To me, the most important quality of photography is its capability to convey emotions. I want to start secret love affairs with places.” Each scenario is loaded with psychological possibilities and symbolism that successfully commingles fiction with fact. Majuri currently lives and works in Helsinki, Finland, and has exhibited in Finland, Norway, Sweden, Iceland, Germany and France. She is a graduate of the Turku Arts Academy (2004), and received her M.A. in photography from the University of Art and Design in Helsinki. In 2005, the artist won the photography prize Gras Savoye Award in Arles, France.
