“In rich, deep blacks and blinding whites, Omatandangole plots a fragmented impression of Namibia’s sparse terrain.“
Aapo Huhta (b. 1985, Finland) combines elements of documentary practice with his own subjective observations, building a range of mysterious and often fragmented narratives in his work. Following the 2015 publication of his first photobook, Block, Huhta embarked on a trip to Namibia, culminating in a new body of work, Omatandangole. The artist received an MA from Helsinki’s Aalto University of Arts and Design having initially pursued a career in education. Huhta’s work has been recognised and exhibited by institutions such as World Press Photo, Fotografiska and Magnum Photos, whilst his images have been published by the likes of Paper Journal, Vice, GUP Magazine and Dazed.
