Lehtola is a Finnish photographer, born in Helsinki,
and most widely known for his late-90s club series
“Young Heroes.” He is both angry and enthusiastic,
and he excels at sussing out those same reactions
in unexpected places—a tattooed biker sitting
below a wall of gaily colored prize ribbons; kids in
mohawks and girls with clownishly messy lipstick;
men with sideburns, sunburns and two black eyes.
