Pentti Sammallahti is a Finnish photographer born in 1950. His photos have a still, northern feel to them…big bulbous clouds in spare landscapes. He also includes animals…especially dogs but he documents them without sentimentality. He was given a 15 year grant by the Finnish government. Imagine! Try to imagine this country giving an artist a grant that would really make it possible to work all the time! How valued would you feel. Like a MacArthur grant but for 15 years!
