Juha Roisko was born to a family of humble origin, early settlers of Finnish-Russian descent in the historical province of Karelia, Finland. He is a family therapist in clinical practice for 12 years. He has lived most of his life as a witness to people's tragic life experiences, a witnessing that has influenced his passion to help families, particularly children, to healing and recovery through psychotherapy.
He is a self-taught artist in photography whose work has been greatly praised by others. Some of his photographs were originally designed to be a tool for therapeutic healing. His photographs radiate a sense of well-being to viewers, one that calms the mind and allows people to appreciate and take in within themselves true beauty at first lens capture.
