Photograph from Helsinki 08 2006

I took this photograph with my little Canon while riding the bike through central Helsinki. Looking at it today, I had to see in it Atget again. In such photographs, the intention is to make the referent recede, and the associations and inner dialogue surface. It is not about old walls, doors and climbing plant, but rather how they influence the observer. Photography has the capability of achieving this transformation ( as old Atget surly sensed )
