Toned silver prints

Handmade silver gelatin photographs. Treated with tea-tannins for a warm, golden-ivory tone.

Darkroom artist Mikael Siirilä

"Mikael has a minimalist and reductionist approach to photography. In his stunning abstract compositions, Mikael eliminates identifiable places and characters in order to encourage an intellectual reading of the picture and to let us imagine what is going on outside the frame. In this way, looking at his pictures, we are confronted with highly evocative images that transcend space and time."
