Susanna Majuri / Sense Of Water

Susanna Majuri is a fine art photographer from Helsinki, Finland. For the past fourteen years she has been working with water. She uses water as if it were paint. It merges people and landscapes together, blurs the dimensions and adds a metaphorical depth to her photography. In her images Majuri composes multiple psychological and symbolically charged scenarios to mirror her innermost feelings. “Sense of Water” is Susanna Majuri’s first book. The book takes the spectator on a visual and emotional journey inside these deeply personal scenes, which are loaded with things one cannot talk. The untold stories, the fear of losing someone you love, profound loneliness. The images are paired with writings from four famous Nordic writers Vigdís Grímsdóttir, Monica Fagerholm, Tua Forsström and Susanna Majuri herself. She hands the reader a map into this other, secret world and unveils the enormous narrative potential that hides outside of the frames.
