Exhibition: Avanto - Ice Hole
Avanto - Ice Hole by Sami Kero is a photo series that depicts winter swimming, a popular winter activity in Finland. There are about 150,000 active winter swimmers in Finland, and the exercise is proven to have many health benefits. The pictures were taken by a drone, giving an unusual vantage point to the viewers.
Sami Kero is a Finnish photojournalist who works for Helsingin Sanomat, the biggest subscription-based newspaper in Finland. He has covered international conflicts and crisis around the world, though most of his daily work takes place in peaceful Finland.
The Avanto - Ice Hole series has won the Daily Press Series in the Perpignan Visa Pour l´Image 2017.
Exhibition organised by the Finnish Institute in London to mark Finland's Presidency of the EU Council.
