Samples from articles:


”The influence of the great masters can be seen on the one hand in the broad landscapes, which have something of the monumental quality of Ansel Adams about them, almost architectural elements shaped by powerful alternations between light and shade. In other pictures one can detect the fine details of Pentti Sammallahti’s black-and-white landscapes.” Kristiina Markkanen, Helsingin Sanomat 12.12.1998

Lapin maa - Images of Lapland

”I don’t remember just like that having ever seen printing of this quality in Finland before. The range of tones, sharpness, wealth of colour and depths of contrast are quite astounding at first glance”. Photographer Jukka Suvilehto, Provincial Museum of Lapland, in the magazine Raito 1/2001

Matka Suomeen - Journey into Finland

”Luukkola is beginning to set standards in photography that it will be hard for others to follow. Matka Suomeen is in all respects a masterpiece of both camera techniques and the secrets of the printing trade. The photographer also proves himself to be a competent writer of prose, and these capabilities combined have created the basis for a book that will be a long-term favourite with all those who enjoy gazing at Finnish landscapes. I look forward to his next work with interest.” Markku Saiha, in the magazine Luontokuva 4/2003.
