Petri Damstén is a dark art photographer, digital artist and nerd from Kuopio, Finland. The passion for photography started after he retired from his day job as a software engineer. He explores the dark side of life in his art. Images are often moody, surreal and distressing. Self-portraiture has always played a big part in Petri’s pictures. So he has experience of being behind the camera as well as being in front of it. He has won many awards in Finland and internationally, including Fotofinlandia finalist and PX3 Gold in Paris, France.
