WHAT       WHO
Saara Mansikkamäki (1987) is a Finnish documentary photographer and audiovisual journalist, based in Helsinki and the nearby woods. She knows how to work on a potato harvester and holds a certificate of oil spill response training, but has no talent on spotting landmines though she’s been briefly trained on that as well.  Ask her to send CV and you’ll get meadow seeds.

Human behavior, especially people's fears and preconceptions, interests Saara a lot. In-depth and long term projects are where she feels the most home, but she’s open for a whole variety of photo/video/audio assignments as long as they align with her values and are paid justly.
