Honnos My Fiddler

Pentti Sammallahti

Gypsy communities in Transylvania, documented by the Finnish photographer in the early 1980s.

The body of work from which these scans were made is an example of a mechanically printed portfolio. Sammallahti is a benchmark figure in contemporary Finnish photography and an innovative developer of printing techniques. The connection with his work came through Sirkka-Liisa Konttinen. He helped on the development of her book, Writing in the Sand (2000, Dewi Lewis).
