Hyvärinen was ten years old when his godmother gave him his first photo album. Using his brother's Kodak Brownie, and later his own Agfa Instamatic camera, Hyvärinen filled the album with photographs of snow-covered landscapes.
Hyvärinen's exhibit at the Finlandia University Gallery, titled "Snow and Ice," combines a selection of these old photographs with some of Hyvärinen's current work to capture the poetic and synergetic relationship between humans and snow.
The Finlandia University Gallery is in the Finnish American Heritage Center, 435 Quincy St., Hancock.
