Photographer Uses Roadside Weather Cameras For Creepy Self Portraits


Tatu Gustafsson’s four-year-long Weather camera self-portraits project is an exercise in relinquishing artistic control. As a photography student, he found that he “didn’t really like the control that photographer has when he or she is taking a picture.”

“I mean, like composition and how I directed the people I was photographing,” Gustafsson tells The Creators Project. “I wanted to let go of this control.”


Finland’s automated weather cameras served as the perfect vehicle for this abandonment of power. Every 12 minutes, over 700 roadside cameras all over the country capture photos, which are uploaded to the Finnish Transport Agency’s website for 24 hours. Since last fall, Gustafsson has spent a week out of every month living in his car as he travels around Finland, posing for these weather cameras.
