From Helsinki, with love is a street photography exhibition celebrating the streets of Helsinki.

An ensemble of photographers with different styles create a multicultural and visual love letter to Helsinki. We, as photographers, want to share the special moments that make us dance wildly with our cameras. Funny, strange, rapid and happy – that’s us and our Helsinki.

Location: Keskuskatu (near the Ateneum) and Kaisaniemi botanical garden, outside the fence (the corner of Unioninkatu and Kaisaniemenranta).

Welcome to the fiesta!

Check out the Helsinki-päivä event!

Kaisa Maria Hollanti has always been curious about seeing the world. Travelling has been her passion, but during the past year she got to know her hometown better than ever. She sees photography as a way to express herself freely and it has taught her how to focus on the moment. Kaisa finds inspiration in colors, shapes, movement, and the play of light and shadows. The most fascinating aspect of shooting on the street is that you never know what you might see next.
