Voyage au Centre de la Terre (2006 –).

Voyage au Centre de la Terre – digital photographs (2006 –). Tuomo Manninen is a professional photographer based in Helsinki. For House Games he presents part of an on going project which he calls Voyage au Centre de la Terre: Tales of a camera phone: Unedited, unconceptual, unintellectual, uninspiring. As indicated by the title, this series tries to look at the everyday in a very simple and visual mind set. Without pre-meditation, the images are taken with the readily available phone-camera and portray images framed by a particular instant in time. The home and familiar objects are shown as a collection of brightly coloured compositions; extracted from their mundane life as pearls from an oyster.
