Juuso Westerlund is a freelance photographer based in Helsinki, Finland. He has studied photography in the University of Art and Design Helsinki and Turku Arts Academy.
Juuso's photography focuses on social documentary and portraiture. His visual language is often quite rough and straight forward yet at the same time very aesthetic. The feeling in his photography is often considered as somewhat strange and humorous. In Juuso’s personal projects, however, you can even see a glimpse of his romantic side.
Juuso shoots a mix of personal work and commissioned work for editorial and commercial clients both home and abroad. Internationally his work has appeared i.a. in New York Times, Vice, Le Monde M Magazine, Die Zeit and Financial Times.
