Peto / Beast

Peto / Beast (ongoing project)

Fine art photography series

‘Beast’ is an ongoing fine art photography series that studies teenage girls.
Girls are often portrayed beautiful, virtuous and ethereal even though girls, especially teenagers, can be quite unstable and horrendous.
Being a monster isn’t necessarily a bad thing, we need sharp claws and strong teeth to survive in this day and age. Maybe girls can and should be monsters too?

‘Beast’ also studies countryside and a finnish rural landscape. I want to look into the connection of the fierce youth and the forests, find the roots of our mythology in the modern age.
What is the landscape of our soul?
