Photographs by Jari Jetsonen

Estonian Museum of Architecture presents the works of two giants of 20th-century architecture, Le Corbusier and Alvar Aalto, as seen through the lens of Jari Jetsonen.

Jetsonen is a recognised Finnish photographer, who has been photographing Alvar Aalto’s architecture for over 20 years. As a dedicated photographer of architecture he became fascinated by the points of contact and similarities in the forms and ideas in both the buildings and thinking of the two seemingly oppositional architects.

Jari Jetsonen (b. 1958) works in the field of architecture as a photographer, writer and model maker. He has taught at Helsinki University of Technology (1989–1999), Nihon University in Tokyo (2000) as well as Aalto University. Jetsonen has published several books of photographs on Alvar Aalto’s work, Finnish church architecture and saunas.
