Symmetrium: Photos by Niko Luoma
Conceptual photos exploring symmetry using thousands of exposures on a single negative.
My process combines systems of calculation and change. I find my inspiration in mathematics and geometry; symmetry and chaos, both imagined and found in nature. All my work is analogue. I use multiple exposures as a method. I am interested in repetition and continuation as concepts. Over the last ten years, I have repeatedly tried to find new ways to challenge the photographic process, that is, to avoid known solutions. Working only with light and light sensitive materials, I am fascinated by the fact that this process leaves nothing behind—no debris, no ruin—just an exposed negative.
