I documented the life and travels of Nipwitz ski crew for four winters. I always felt that I wasn't totally part of the crew. In a way I was Right Next To It. For me the world of skiing shows more passion than anything else. Cold long nights filming urban skiing to get a few seconds of material for the final film asks nothing but dedication. That dedication can be seen Right Next To where the action is happening. Silent moments make the dedication visible.
Some of these photos has been exhibited in Rovaniemi art museum Korundi for two weeks in November 2014 and for one night in Bio Rex Helsinki. There is also a Nipwitz The Book booklet covering the last two years of the journey. Brain Massage movie directed by Aarni Toiviainen can be seen here. Nipwtiz The Book can be ordered here.
