Crew III and behind the scenes of a photograph

Man behind the whole Relate To It -project Antti Autti shares his thoughts about the project.

Antti at Tamok. This was my favorite shot of the year. We were in Tamok right up in the treeline, it was snowing really hard, weather was getting warmer and snow turned to slush. Everything was wet and my videocamera got fogged from inside and stopped working. Then same thing happened to DSLR, not only lenses were fogged but the sensor seemed to be as well. I could not shoot with them anymore. I turned to Super8, got the quick shot that ended up in the film and in my pocket was an old Olympus XA 35mm point-and-shoot loaded with x-process Lomo film that I used for this shot. Not a bad day after all! Photo can be seen at Cafe Kauppayhtiö exhibition.


This photo was part of exhibition called Harhalaukaus. It was on display at Bar Kuka in Turku last year and at bar Cafe&Pint also in Turku this year. It contained photos from seven different photographers. Photos were eventually sold in auction for charity.

Harhalaukaus, “misfire” or  actually “missed shot” in english was about accidentally taken or somehow ruined photographs that otherwise would have been considered useless.

My photo was taken at Scrapbook sessions 2008 in Rovaniemi. Shot was meant to be a backlit photo of snowboarder Miikka Hast. I snapped a photo with my old Yashica D, on the background I saw Teo Konttinen spitting water on the kicker and thought that I needed another, this time clean shot of Miikka. I forgot to advance film and took another photo double exposing them by accident. Result you can see above. I think it is much more interesting this way though.
