Tom of Finland

The Darkroom

Tom of Finland is regarded as a role model in the fight for a more equal and fair world.
He contributed to the sense of pride that became a major force in the early gay movement.
Tom’s men are proud, happy, and confident.

Tom of Finland (born Touko Laaksonen)
has primarily been known as a creator of drawings, his principal medium being graphite,
but only a few are aware that he was also an active and
multifaceted photographer.

This year marks 100 years since the artist was born in Finland and
Fotografiska Tallinn will premier its newest photo exhibition
The Darkroom.

Our exhibition halls will be the first to bring audiences
Tom of Finland’s photography which is produced by
Fotografiska in collaboration with Tom of Finland Foundation.
#TOMs100

The exhibition will be opened with a special tour by curator
Berndt Arell.
