Description

The photographs of Tony Vaccaro (b. 1922, United States) dive into the ambiances and moments in times gone by.

The exhibition Life is Wonderful presents iconic fashion and lifestyle images from the 1950s to the 1970s by the internationally renowned photographer.

Besides New York glamour, the photos capture nostalgic summer moods in Finland; Vaccaro shot fashion by Marimekko for Life magazine in summer 1964 in Porvoo and Helsinki.

In addition to fashion photography, the exhibition also includes several portraits of visual artists and celebrities. Vaccaro is also known for his wartime photos. The exhibition also features his photographs of battles in Germany and France during the Second World War, as well as a selection of impressions of post-war reconstruction in Europe.
