Finnish photographer Susanna Majuri creates surreal water scenes where the viewer is left to guess at the nature of mysterious narratives. The photos appear almost like film stills, capturing a moment of action that could well end badly. The subjects are immersed in cold aqua waters that carry the story and provide an infusion of colour to every scene. In spite of the more unusual elements such as polar bears and ravens, it is the turquoise in its many hues and plays of light and shadow that bring out the emotion of Majuri's work.
In her photographs, Susanna Majuri captures short narrative scenes as though they were film stills of a story yet to be told. Her main characters, young women mostly, their faces hidden, give a distinct impression of being lost.
She has had exhibitions in New York, USA and all over in Europe as in Finland, Norway, Sweden, Iceland, Denmark, Poland, Germany and France. Susanna Majuri has won the photography prize Gras Savoye Award in Arles, France 2005 and is part of the photographic movement Helsinki School.
Majuri lives and works in Helsinki, Finland.
