From the 1st moment I've been very excited about self published work 'Elsa und Viola' by Palomäki. In the new release of german publishing house, 'Breathing the Same Air' we have the chance to meet them once more, these strong, magic and artifical B/W-Portraits,. In my opinion is this book beneath 'Portraits' by belgian photographer Stephan Vanfleteren, one of the most important book of this genre since last ten years.
"Finnish photographer Palomäki (*1981) searches for the lost magic that was once inherent in photography in the days when having your portrait taken was something special. Palomäki’s timeless black-andwhite portraits of children and young adults reveal the fragility of the moment shared with her subject. Her photographs deal with growing up, memory, and mortality. In the artist’s own words, “We fight against our mortality, denying it, yet photographs are there to prove our inescapable destiny. The idea of getting older is heart-rending.” (publisher hatje)

Palomäki's works already has been displayed in forth publication about Hel-sinki School, called, called 'A Female View# (2011), together with works from Elina Brotherus, Tiina Itkonen, Aino & Sanna Kannisto, Anni Leppälä, Riitta Päiväläinen.

P.s selbst verlegtes Buch 'Elsa und Viola' hatte mich sofort in seinen Bann gezogen. In dem nun erschienen 'Breathing the Same Air' eines größeren deutschen Verlages begegnen sie uns wieder, die SW-Portraits, welche durch Ernsthaftigkeit, einen Zauber sowie eine besondere künstlerische Qualität gekennzeichnet sind. Für mich ist das Buch neben 'Portraits' des Belgiers Stephan Vanfleteren, einer der wichtigsten Titel dieses Genres der vergangenen zehn Jahre.
"Die junge finnische Fotografin Nelli Palomäki (*1981 in Forssa), Absolventin der renommierten Aalto University School of Art and Design in Helsinki ("Helsinki School"), sucht in ihren Arbeiten nach der verloren gegangenen Magie, die der Fotografie früher innewohnte." (Verlag)
Bereits im 2011 erschienen 4. Band über Arbeiten aus der Helsinki School, genannt "A Female View", war sie neben Elina Brotherus, Tiina Itkonen, Aino & Sanna Kannisto, Anni Leppälä, Riitta Päiväläinen u.v.a. vertreten.
