We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea - whether it is to sail or to watch it
- we are going back from whence we came.
John F. Kennedy, 1962

Vellamo (Work-in-Progress)

Vellamo is a long-term personal project that explores seascapes and the presence of human intervention.

Originating from a personal relationship of fear and freedom, the project explores the complexity of the seascape in terms of human intervention and the absence of such activity. The project consists of observations and reflections from various locations around the world. The project’s working title relates to the origins of the project, referring to the goddess of seas, oceans and lakes in Finnish mythology who also provides sailors and fishers with fair winds. The project currently consists of images from three countries. Each image is titled with the approximate GPS coordination of the pictured location.

The project is currently in development and at the moment consists of images from three countries.
