Following a distinguished career as a photojournalist, Finnish photographer Hannes Heikura more recently began art photography. ‘We Walk Alone’, photographed in the lights and shadows of Helsinki’s urban landscape, continues Heikura’s earlier ‘Dark Zone’ series, yet with a focus on the loneliness of human existence in the city. Working in black and white, he reveals the dramatic and poetic aspects of the solitary wandering of the human mind. A documentary of sorts, it also offers authenticity, magically charged with the photographer’s own interpretations based in reality. Besides numerous, striking images, the book includes a short text by Heikura.
