Mimosa Elo



Artist’s Statement

Searching for Soltorp: The Water Diaries is a photo book that deals with the themes of place and belonging.

Always longing to be at my family’s summer cottage, and by the wondrous sea that surrounds it, I photograph places by the water in hope of finding a fraction of Soltorp wherever I go. What I find is often something else; memories and thoughts that echo both from life of Moomins’ as well as my own.

Mimosa Elo is a Finnish photographic artist currently based in Loviisa, Finland and Rochester, England.
