Joni Karanka Contact

United Kingdom
I was born in Finland and grew up in Spain. I mostly shoot in Cardiff, were I live, but also when travelling. I shoot 35mm film and some medium format.

Things I like: the moments of Cartier-Bresson, the interests of Diane Arbus, the grain and stories of Jim Goldberg, the closeness of Bruce Davidson, the message in the chaos of Winogrand. I read my first photography book six months ago, but at least I know what I like... interesting everyday topics.

Themes I like: the normal people that are really strange, the strange people that are really normal, the slightly odd, the normal composition with a weird out of place element, the strange composition of too normal elements.

Looks I like: grain, some blur, pictures that you can chew, the colour black.
