Vilma Leino is a Finnish born, Berlin-based photographer. She was born in 1999 and has been using photography as a medium since 2015. Her work focuses on self-portraiture, which she uses to reflect inner emotions, solitude, and difficult psychological stages. In her work, she creates female characters with untold stories and experiments with strong color schemes, composition, and the human body. The photographs often balance between beauty and horror, and she uses humor as an aspect to lighten up darker subjects. Her photographs are a one-woman show, where being in control and the fear of losing it are in a constant dialogue, forming a story about personal growth, where fears are forming into strength.
