Photographer Risto Vuorimies photographed artists and bands for the record company Love Records between 1973 and 1976 and designed album covers, of which Hurriganes’ Roadrunner is one of the most famous.
In the exhibition on the first floor of the main library, you can see photos taken by the photographer of Finnish artists, such as Hurriganes, Dave Lindholm, Wigwam, Tasavallan Presidenti, Mikko Alatalo and Rauli “Badding” Somerjoki.
Interview in the Drama Hall
Risto Vuorimies’ interview can be heard in the Drama Hall of the main library on Wednesday 14 June at 18:00. The event is free of charge.
-The camera is an important documentation tool. Without the visual memories of the 1970s, many would hardly remember the expressions and essences of these artists, even though they penetrate our midst today as voices in various media. A black and white photograph tells about the tones and tunes of life, says Risto Vuorimies.
Currently, Vuorimies is preparing the photo book ‘Hurriganes’ to be published in autumn 2023.
