Markku Lahdesmaki began his photographic journey around the neighborhoods of his hometown of Tampere, Finland. This quiet industrial city supplied Markku with inspiration and passion. And together with these forces of creativity in hand, Markku began harvesting the world for images.
After roaming high and low and through all the corners of the world, Markku landed in the tropical wonderland of Southern California. In California, Markku would set up camp and enjoy excursions on his Vespa, while hunting down endangered species, odd faces and unique perspectives with his camera.
