Photographer Arno Minkkinen showcased a lifetime of his work in a lecture at APSU

 

Photographer Arno Rafael Minkkinen came to Austin Peay State University to present a lecture as part of the Visiting Artist Lecture Series sponsored by the APSU Department of Art, and the APSU Center of Excellence for the Creative Arts. “Art is Risk Made Visible” began his presentation. The standing room only lecture featured around 300 slides that he used to highlight his nearly 40 year career. He was introduced by APSU Professor of Photography, Susan Bryant.

Minkkinen has a enduring love for the ruggedness of the human body, which he frequently contrasts nude against the unspoiled beauty of the natural world. His photographs make use of natural lighting and shadows with the deft touch of a Renaissance painter. However he also possesses the skill of a master magician who never reveals his tricks; as he eschews any kind of artificial manipulation in his photographs including the use of assistants, “Make them single negatives: This means no manipulation of any kind.”
