Arno Rafael Minkkinen

United States

From the Shelton, Looking East

Minkkinen has investigated self‐portrait throughout his career, using all parts of his body apart from his face. Often playing with decor and trompe‐l’oeil, observers are obliged to linger in order to unravel the mysteries of their composition. The photographer presents a photograph from the series Interiors and Exteriors In Vevey, a town that he knows well having taught photography at the Centre for Vocational Education.
