Pentti Sammallahti, Finnish Photographer
In 2003 Henri Cartier-Bresson chose a photo (first on the left) by Mr. Pentti Sammallahti, a 53-year old photographer then --one of 100 images that the French master found most "stimulating, joyful and moving"-- for his foundation's inaugural exhibition in Paris. A big dog sits high up on a Russian snowmobile, it's ears pricked, king of all it surveys.
