The pair began to gather their collection in the early 1980s, when the Hippolyte gallery began to attract photographers and lovers of their work.

The works will be on show from 16 January at the Finnish Photography Museum, which is located at the Cable Factory in the Ruoholahti district of Helsinki.

The collection includes works from the last three decades by Caj and Stefan Bremer, Elina Bortherus, Veli Granö, Markus Jokela and Pekka Turunen. In addition to Finnish photographers, works from Édouard Boubat, Henri Cartier-Bresson and Larry Clark will also go on display.
