My name is Joel Nieminen (Helsinki, Finland 1985). I am a photographer and visual explorer. In my work I concentrate in living surroundings and phenomena in our time. I use my camera to study and portray people and life around me, using keen observation, imagination and the craft of digital imaging.

I live and work in Rotterdam (NL). My work range is divided between my own projects and client assignments.
