The Foundation presents at Paris Photo three masters: the pioneering Finnish photographers and filmmakers Heikki Aho (1895-1961), Björn Soldan (1902-1953) and Claire Aho (1925-2015). Heikki Aho and Björn Soldan were part of one of the most influential families in Finnish cultural history. Their father, author Juhani Aho (1861-1921), was married to artist Venny Soldan-brofeldt (1863-1945). In 1924, they founded the legendary Aho & Soldan company, producing over 400 documentary films. Heikki´s daughter Claire Aho, ‘The Grand Old Lady of Finnish Photography’, joined Aho & Soldan then opened her own studio. Cultural icon, pioneer of color photography, Claire Aho was especially active in the 1950s and 1960s.
