Publisher's Description

Inspired by the title of a poem by the Finnish writer Aaro Hellaakoski, Me Kaksi (which translates to "we two" in French) celebrates the fortuitous encounter, the strange closeness, the presence in the world of two beings. The photographs in this book reproduce these fleeting moments captured on the sly by Pentti Sammallahti. The idea of ​​the duo, the couple, of all kinds of accomplices appears recurrently in the photographer's work. Whether it is lovers, friends, children, passers-by, travelers, neighbors but also a man and his dog, two birds ... Sammallahti's images tell of the attachment, the tenderness, the emotional bond, "being-in-the-world" together.

A look at more than forty years of wanderings around the world, the photographs in this book are so many little haikus: they celebrate the evanescence of things, fragments of encounters, unexpected, fortuitous, exceptional intimacy but also sometimes of powerful evidence.
