Finnish photographer Claire Aho’s prolific mid-century oeuvre is the subject of a current exhibit at London’s The Photographer’s Gallery, encompassing a range of fashion, advertising, editorial and reportage-style photography that is united by a strong sense of color and form. On display through 21 July 2013, the photos span 1950 – 1970 and “illustrate Aho’s trademark vibrancy and humor, through formally inventive compositions and scenarios constantly reimagined.”

Claire Aho: Studio Works is on display through 21 July 2013 at The Photographer’s Gallery, 16 – 18 Ramillies Street, London, W1F 7LW, open Monday – Sunday; see website for hours. Admission is free.
