About Tuomas Uusheimo

Tuomas Uusheimo is an Finland based photographer for documentary, architectural and interior photography.

Thru my photography I am trying to observe and understand the human built environments in relation to their erectors and inhabitants. Life span of buildings outlast that of their creators. They remain standing even if the very reason of their existence or the original function has disappeared. Buildings carry their past with them; I want to photograph their memories.

Tuomas Uusheimo is a Finnish photographer working on both commercial assignment and personal project.  The works concentrate on architecture, built environments, designed interiors and objects.

Tuomas's photographs have been published extensively in international publications and his work has been exhibited in Belgium, Finland, China, Croatia, France, Italy, Tunisia and the United States. He is currently teaching architectural photography as a visiting teacher for Lahti Institute of Design and Fine Arts and KS Koolitus.
