Korea is a Finnish word for something bright, beautiful, glorious, colorful, cute and neat. It is also a combination of a micronation and a company ruled by photographer Aki-Pekka Sinikoski. Eventhough he is the King of Korea, rumours tell that he never wears a crown and that most people calls him Peki.
He is also the curator and founder of Helsinki Biennale. Sinikoski is working in the fields of advertising photos, company identities and editorial photography for music and life style magazines. He is constantly working with portraits for various clients. These clients love his fresh ideas and unique style which he crystallizes in professional photos taylor made for their needs.
What these clients have in common is that they have realized the power of photographs as part of their company image and its communication. They are the leading companies in their branch and they love Korea for making their voice visible.
Peki has studied in Kunstakademiet at Kunsthøgskolen i Bergen, Norway and graduated as Master of Art from the Department of Media in Aalto University, Finland. His major subject is from the Aalto University’s Unit of Photography and his minor subject from the Aalto University’s School of Economics. Even though Peki works all over he world, Korea is located in Helsinki where it was founded in 2003.
