However diverse Jouko Lehtola’s themes may be, collected together they resemble many arms all connected to the same body moving in the same direction just in different ways. Lehtola´s photographs defined the Finnish urban youth culture of the 1990´s. He also raised the issues of domestic violence, drug and alcohol abuse and our social taboo´s towards sexual devations that exist on the fringes of our society. His images walk the talk in the same way as Larry Clark´s works did in the 1970´s. He is not pushing an agenda but riding with the tide of his times each moment is its own universe. –Timothy Persons
