Miklos Gaál is part of a young generation of Finnish photographers whose fresh, untainted view of modern civilisation has attracted considerable attention in recent years. The world becomes a toy landscape in these large-format color photographs that lure and guide our eyes, irritating our gaze in images composed of alternating areas of sharp and soft focus. Ordinary, everyday situations - places like airports, playing fields and pedestrian shopping zones - are transformed into poetic model worlds. Featuring some thirty works, Sightseeing Tour offers a compact overview of the most recent phase of Gaál's oeuvre.
