About me

 

Hello, my name is Harri and I'm a Finnish urban photographer based in London. Always out and about, I seek to understand urban life through my camera. Having studied a BA and an MA at Goldsmiths College, I am now looking for more challenging and stimulating work to keep me occupied. I am always interested in hearing from other people so don't hesitate to contact me!
