My name is Arto Forsblom. I’m a photographer and journalist from Finland. I currently live in the city of Lappeenranta.

This website is dedicated to my portraits. I have shooted these images either decades ago or very recently. I believe the best portraits are timeless and capture both a past and a present time.  I try to be curious and I want to think that I haven’t taken my best photo yet.

See my CV below.
