TSM Year's Best Photographer Arto Saari has experienced satisfying successes and tragic events that shaped his outlook. In a way, his art imitates his life. Arto’s photography manages to deftly capture those layers of pain and ecstasy that come with skateboarding’s territory, “processed” through Arto’s own unique filter. The “Dogfight” cover this year was representative of the man himself: graceful, original, and intense.
