The Helsinki School represents a selected group of artists who have either taught, graduated or attended Aalto University, School of Arts, Design and Architecture.
It was originally conceived in the early 1990´s as an educational model for introducing the use of the photographic process as a conceptual tool.
Today it has grown into one of the most internationally recognizable programs of its kind in the world. It exemplifies an approach to teaching that combines the conceptualization of the content with the professional skills needed to realize, present and build a sustainable career.
