Aleksi Lausti Photography
I'm a freelance photographer and journalist and have contributed numerous articles on various topics to many magazines, and shot countless images for various publications and photo agencies. For the past twenty years I've also worked as a volunteer and co-administrator at a non-profit international collective of charities based in India that is dedicated to helping to alleviate the burden of the world's poor and providing humanitarian aid where needed
I first held a camera and shot my first images when I was six years old. The camera was an old and battered medium format TLR (twin lens reflex) camera from East-Germany, but it was more than enough to kindle in me a deep love of photography that continues unabated until today. Later, in the 80's, I worked and studied in a darkroom and discovered the magic of developing film and techniques related to producing fine art prints.
Fast forward: An inner urge to explore the spiritual side of life took me eventually to India. After what came to be more than a decade of monastic life in India, I eventually returned to photography in the digital age and have not looked back since.
