Inspired by the title of a poem by the Finnish writer Aaro Hellaakoski, Me Kaksi (which translates to "us two" in English) celebrates the fortuitous encounter, the strange closeness, the presence in the world of two beings. Spanning more than forty years of peregrinations across the world, the photographs in this book, combining a selection of iconic and some unpublished ones, reproduce these fleeting moments seized surreptitiously by Pentti Sammallahti. The idea of the duo, the couple, of all kinds of accomplices appears recurrently in the photographer's work. Whether it is lovers, friends, children, passers-by, travelers, neighbors but also a man and his dog, two birds ... these images tell of attachment, tenderness, the universality of the emotional bond, “being-in-the-world” together.
