Whilst looking through some old research I had on disc, It occured to me  that so far in my blog, I haven’t included any photographers.   I came across this photographer a few years ago.  I love the abstract quality in his work.

I don’t know why, but I thought he was Russian.  Wrong! when I looked in the Wikipedia I found that Pentii Sammallahti was actually born in Finland! HELSINKI to be exact.  Now that is strange…………look at page 14 of my Altered Art Book.
