Mikael Siirilä (b. 1978) is a darkroom artist in Helsinki, Finland. Mikael learned the darkroom process early on in his childhood in an art-loving family. Two decades of work in graphic and web design are apparent in his compositions. His fragmented images are all observations from his life yet void of narrative or context. His work revolves introspectively around themes such as outsiderhood, absence and presence. He is a member of the international film photography collective AllFormat. Siirilä works solely with black & white film and the darkroom. For him, the darkroom is a space for reflection, introspection, and continuous learning.
