About the artist

Aapo’s desire to break from routine drove him to the windswept terrains of the Namibian desert, which he chose to document in a monochromatic spectrum of deep blacks and blinding whites. As with the entire series, Dune #1 marks a formative point in time for Aapo – both personal and professional – and visualises a moment of acute and rapt attention to his immediate surroundings.

In 2014, Huhta was selected as one of the Top 30 Under 30 photographers by Magnum Photos. He received the award of the Young Nordic Photographer of the Year 2015 and was chosen for the Joop Swart Masterclass in 2016.

“The need to disappear meant some sort of a break from my daily life, which back then was changing so much I felt I could not handle or understand. Sometimes you have to go far to be able to observe the things that are close to you.”
Aapo Huhta

Aapo Huhta explores the fraught terrain of the Namibian desert, treating it as much as a psychological, interior landscape as an actual one.
Darren Campion, Photography Critic.

Helsinki, Finland

Aapo Huhta (b. 1985, Finland) combines elements of documentary practice with his own subjective observations, building a range of mysterious and often fragmented narratives in his work. Following the 2015 publication of his first photobook, Block, Huhta embarked on a trip to Namibia, culminating in a new body of work, Omatandangole. The artist received an MA from Helsinki’s Aalto University of Arts and Design having initially pursued a career in education. Huhta’s work has been recognised and exhibited by institutions such as World Press Photo, Fotografiska and Magnum Photos, whilst his images have been published by the likes of Paper Journal, Vice, GUP Magazine and Dazed.
