”It's great that an academic work can be also visually creative. Big thanks to Jesper who designed the book visuals”, says photographer Maija Tammi.

Her artistic research ”Sick Photography. Representations of Sickness in Art Photography” scrutinizes how sickness has been represented in art photography and examines new ways to approach, think about and create photographic art about sickness.

Tammi’s background is in photojournalism. She has a Masters in visual journalism and she worked as a photojournalist for six years before her artistic career. She completed her doctorate from Aalto University, School of Arts, Design and Architecture in 2017.

The works have gained attention and raised international interest. Tammi’s works have been exhibited in Paris, Berlin, Rome, London, New York and Tokyo, and she has three published books Leftover/Removals (Kehrer Verlag, 2014), White Rabbit Fever (Bromide Books, 2017) and Sick Photography (Aalto Arts Books, 2017).

Currently, the photographer is working on a “Volunteer 4” collection dealing with science and themes of mortality and immortality. The works will be presented as a book and an exhibition in 2020.
