ABOUT

We could talk about Finland all day. That’s a lie. But Finland has at least one trick up it’s proverbial sleeve. That trick is Thomas Ekström.

An observer of melancholy and the ordinary, this gentle and friendly photographer skilfully plays with his subjects and settings to bring out something quite unordinary, and often times hilarious. In a well honed and nuanced way, Thomas’ images tells layered stories.

But, since getting snatched up by a Norwegian in female form, Finland observes very little Thomas Ekström. His love for a woman brought him here, now let’s hope our collective love for him keeps him here. It’s our duty as a nation. Let’s make Norway Great Again.
