The Finnish artist visited the "Baumwollspinnerei" at Leipzig in 2018.
She obtained her professional training in photography in Helsinki and Budapest. In 2014 she graduated from the Aalto University School of Arts, Design and Architecture with a Master of Arts in Photography. Tanja Koljonen has presented her works in Scandinavia and Europe within both solo and group exhibitions. For the most part her photographic works from the last few years relate to language, words and the visual potential of ideas.
Currently the photograhic artist is intensely occupying herself with „word-images“, which in the long run should form the basis of an artist’s book and a series of graphical prints.
Tanja Koljonen lives and works in Helsinki.
