ARNO RAFAEL MINKKINEN??is known for his black and white abstract pieces which juxtapose bodies and landscapes in surprising ways: he "directs scenes in which his body ? or a portion of it ? appears as an integral part of the landscape ? such as an outcropping or rock formation".

He was born in Helsinki, Finland in 1945. After his family moved to the United States, Minkkinen graduated from Wagner College in 1967 with a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature, and from Rhode Island School of Design where he studied with Harry Callahan and Aaron Siskind with a Master of Fine Arts in Photography.

Arno is a celebrated artist and teacher and have been published and exhibited world wide. Over the past four decades, he has been primarily engaged as a teacher, curator, and writer while continuing to devote his photographic research and energies to the self-portrait: unmanipulated images of the naked human figure in the natural landscape.

Arno is coming to Norway 16-21 June to teach the workshop ?Taking Charge of Your Vision?. The workshop takes place at historical Gammel Kleppe Farm in Vågå, a perfect place to embark on a inspirational journey together with one of the best photo teachers there is.  To read more about this workshop visit Nordphotography at or check out NORDphotography?s facebook group (link: To sign up for this workshop, or if you have any questions, please contact NORDphotography at
