SANTERI TUORI’S works are elegant and they have a marked appeal to the senses. The aspect of time essential to photography relates in an interesting way to Tuori’s collage-type method. A single piece contains pictures of many different moments, and even from different years. His work is characterized by the logic of layeredness, covering and revealing, with individual works consisting of several layers of images. The layers translucently visible through each other contain both black and white and colour photographs.
