Jenni Granholm is a photographic artist living and working in Finland. Through her enigmatic self-portraits, her work deals with themes of femininity and restraint, entanglement and the desire for freedom coupled with the fear of it. Based on her life’s events and personal circumstances, the body plays a central role in her simple, uncomplicated compositions where the ribbon is used not only as a tether but also as a trope for harnessing the impulse to break free. The deliberate use of a soft pastel colour palette gives her images a fragile beauty and an unashamedly feminine aesthetic. As an empowering statement, she never shows her face in her photographs.

Jenni Granholm began her BA Photography at the College of Fine Arts (Sydney, Australia) and undertook her final year at Aalto University (Finland). In 2010 she gained her MA Digital Arts from Camberwell College of Arts, London. Her work has been exhibited internationally in solo and group exhibitions in Australia, Russia, Finland, Northern Ireland and London. She has also had work published on the front cover of Neste Oil Magazine (Finland) for three successive years and was a featured artist on Aesthetica Magazine’s on-line platform. In 2022 her photograph was chosen for the Royal Shakespeare Company's poster.
