Studio @ Lemuntie 6, Helsinki, Finland



Aapo Huhta (1985) is a Helsinki based photographer. He received an MA in photography from the Aalto University of Arts and Design, Helsinki Finland.

Huhta combines elements of documentary practise with his own subjective observations, building a range of ambiguous and often fragmented narratives in his work. Exploring different forms of photographic essay, its methods and possibilities is playing a major role in his work. The exploration has culminated in two photobooks, Block (Kehrer Verlag, 2015) and Omatandangole (Kehrer Verlag, 2019). In 2014, Huhta was selected as one of the Top 30 Under 30 photographers by the Magnum Photos. He received the award of the Young Nordic Photographer of the Year 2015 and was chosen for the Joop Swart Masterclass in 2016. In 2019, he was selected for a Young Artist of the Year award by Tampere Art Museum. 

Huhta is also known for his freelance assignment works. His work has been published in Vice, The Guardian/The Observer, Bloomberg Businessweek, Stern, The Washington Post, Financial Times, Die Zeit Magazine, Dazed Digital, Morgenbladet, Paper Journal, Fotografia Magazine, APhotoEditor, Raymond, X, Suomen Kuvalehti, Image and Helsingin Sanomat among others.
