Publisher's Description

Block is a photographic essay, amassed as a set of visions, offering hints for storylines in a murky, dystopic scene of the city witnessed by a stranger. Focusing on gray, concrete features with some people as spectators, narrowing down the elements in the frame, driven most often by the observation of the shapes the light creates, it alludes to a mute perspective toward contemporary city life and the people’s role in it. Simultaneously it is a story where the photographer plays the role of a protagonist in the big city that throws a newcomer into its infinite whirl of new people and peculiar surroundings. Photographs for the book were shot in New York between 2014 and 2015.

Aapo Huhta (b. 1985) is a Finnish photographer who recently completed his MA in photography at the Aalto University of Arts and Design, Helsinki. He received the award of the Finnish Young Photo Journalist of the Year 2011. In 2014 Huhta was selected as one of the Top 30 Under 30 photographers by Magnum Photos, won the PDN Photo Annual Student Work Prize.
