Minttu Maari Mäntynen
Minttu Maari Mäntynen is a British-Finnish photographer and filmmaker, currently based in Edinburgh, Scotland. Her work investigates what it means to live on a planet in constant process and transformation, and what it takes to belong in specific places and environments.
Winter Swimmer is part of a larger series of photography, exploring our relationship to safety and comfort in natural environments. We all have an individual approach to the environment, our own narratives of what is comfortable, what we are capable of. The image in the exhibition was taken during a swimming trip in Örö in March this year.
