Niko Luoma and Arno Minkkinen: The Finnish Frame of Mind

Arno Minkkinen and Niko Luoma are having a duo show at Galerie Valérie Bach in Brussels. In 2009, Galerie Valérie Bach organised a solo show with the Finnish photographer Arno Rafael Minkkinen. For his second exhibition at the gallery, they propose a Finnish duo, comparing Minkkinen´s black and white self-portraits to his Finnish colleague Niko Luoma´s abstract compositions. Both artists are certain at one thing: it is about pure photography; what the lens sees is what the photograph becomes. Nothing more. No tricks.

Opening: November 7, 2013, 6–9pm
Nov 7–Dec 21, 2013
Venue: Galerie Valérie Bach
rue faider 6
1060 Brussels, Belgium
Opening hours: Thu–Sat, 11am–1pm / 2–7pm,
