Männikkö subsequently worked in the US on a series of portraits and views from southern Texas near the Mexican border, titled 'Mexas'. These people also stem from a poor existence but succeed nevertheless to establish a distinct but hybrid mythology of their own. Here the landscapes come to play an even more important role than in the Finnish series, beautiful but barren as they were.

... Exposition Exhibition : Enrico David and Esko Männikkö at the Collezione Maramotti
Collezione Maramotti announce the new exhibitions by Enrico David and Esko Männikkö, opening in private view on Saturday 16 May 2015 at 6.00pm at the Collection.
Enrico “La Caduta” David is a new project created for the Collection, composed of some works suspended and freestanding. The way in which the works exist in relation to each other – and interact with space – yields a context that can be narrated to the viewer.
Time Flies. A highlight of Finnish photographer Männikkö includes 50 photographs from 1991 to 2013, selected to highlight the affinities between his poetics in the use of light and in the relation with time, and the identity of the Collection.

... Exposition Exhibition : Time Flies by Esko Männikkö Yancey Richardson is pleased to present Time Flies, a selection of works by Finnish photographer Esko Männikkö, the artist’s fifth exhibition with the gallery. The selection is drawn from the artist’s current museum retrospective, which originated in Finland at the Kunsthalle Helsinki and is travelling to Collezione Maramotti, Italy; Huis Marseilles, Amsterdam; and Gothenburg Museum of Art, Sweden. Männikkö was previously the winner of the 2008 Deutsche Börse Photography Prize, the first time a Finnish artist has been recipient of this prestigious award.
As a self-taught artist, Männikkö counts few stylistic precedents or influences, and though his interest in the residue of everyday life is the foundation of his image making, his formalism lends itself to metaphoric or e...

Galerie Nordenhake is pleased to present PEMOHT, an exhibition by Finnish photographers Esko Männikkö and Pekka Turunen. The title takes its' name from a photographic essay realised by the two artists in conjunction over a seven year period between 1989 and 1995. Previously only exhibited in Scandinavia and Russia, this will be the first time this significant series is reassembled and can be seen in its' almost integrality since shortly after its' completion. This will also be the first time both artists will be shown together in a gallery context.
The title PEMOHT refers to the Cyrillic script for the Russian word Remont – a term which can be translated as Reparation and stands as the euphemistic and tragic symbol for the collapse of a country and the subsequent failure of its' in...

It is a great pleasure and honour for us to present such a unique collection of artists that have shaped the development of photography as an art form, says Jens R Jenssen, senior vice president of human resources and leader of the Statoil art programme. And he continues: This exhibition will make a difference.
The exhibition consists of approximately 180 works of photography, spanning from the 1842 to 2002. With a unique collection of original Irving Penns as a basis, the diversity of the collection is presented in a wide number of small exhibitions within the main concept, says Arnt N Fredheim, curator, the Statoil art programme. It’s like a dream has come trough, he continues, as the possibility to make an exhibition of legendary photographers like William Henry Fox Talbot, Edward Weston, Karl Blossfeldt... Exposition Photography Group Show Photography always puts reality into frames. The photographer takes a picture of something and thereby decides to leave everything else out of it, whereas it might well be possible that the things left out are far more important than the objects in the picture. We tend to object to this by saying that photography violates or undermines truth and reality because it distracts us from the essential events happening at the same time. In a way, that is a valid objection: a picture evidently will never be able to render or reproduce reality more genuine than reality does itself. You always "should have been there yourself", to put it in a slightly trivial way. We know by experience that every observation and perception of reality is "colored". Why is it then that truth is such a problematic issue in photogr...

Exposition ESKO MÄNNIKKÖ "HARMONY SISTERS" In his exhibition "Harmony Sisters" Finish artist Esko Männikkö turns his camera to different animals. Horses, cows, chickens, and dogs are glimpsed more than seen in intimate close-ups. The works are almost abstract but an occasional eye, a wet muzzle, or a swirl of fur give the animals away.
His earlier photographic portraits of bachelors living in the north of his native Finland quickly became epitomes of a stereotyped version of loneliness and self-reliance in the 'Far North'. From these images emanated a strange kind of respect, both to traditional portraits, such as surrounding them with objects serving as attributes, and incorporating the frame as an integral part of the works. The respect also extended to the persons depicted, they seem to be in control of their own 'Lebenswelt', although deferred from the ...
