From the curatorial effort of the EU project 1950s in Europe Kaleidoscope, every week on Friday there’s a new set of carefully selected photographs to be explored on the project’s website.
Today we present “Aukusti Tuhka”.
A boundless creative spirit, Aukusti Tuhka was a Finnish artist specialized in illustration, lithography, woodcuts and art prints. During World War II, Tuhka was employed by the army as an artist, where his duties included filmmaking and photography. This collection, sourced from Europeana.eu, reflects the variety of his (photographic) oeuvre, boasting advertisement pictures, documentary images and cityscapes bathing in a fabulously fifties color palette.
