Online Exclusive: Pentti Sammallahti July 18- September 18, 2018
Peter Fetterman Gallery is pleased to feature Finnish photographer Pentti Sammallahti for its first ever Artsy online-exclusive exhibition. This show includes a range of artworks from Sammallahti’s many travels across Finland, Japan, Italy, Denmark, Nepal, India, and Spain, works that showcase his printing excellence and the artist’s wonderful sense of humor.
Sammallahti’s work transcends the ordinary through the artist’s ability to perfectly capture a moment. More often than not, he uses animals as focal points to explore the relationship between living beings and their environments. By looking through Sammallahti’s eyes, we see a world that is both playful and beautiful.
