On the night of today, Arvo Tarmula, a photographer of Lääne Elu, left us unexpectedly at the age of 84 (11 May 1937-15 August 2021).

Tarmula was the oldest working press photographer in Estonia and a member of the editorial board of Lääne Elu for over 30 years. The editorial office of Lääne Elu will remember him infinitely curious, benevolent, cheerful and active – he always reached everywhere and often knew the news before all of us.

Born in Pärnu, Tarmula graduated from Pärnu Secondary School No. 2 in 1956. He has lived in Haapsalu since 1970, and since the establishment of Lääne Elu in 1989, Tarmula has been a photographer for Lääne Elu.

He was a member of the Haapsalu Photo Club.

In 2006 he received the Order of the Haapsalu Coat of Arms, in 2013 the Order of the 5th Class of the White Star, in 2015 the Order of the St. John’s Congregation of Haapsalu.

In February of this year, the Tarmula Cultural Capital was awarded the Lääne County Lifetime Achievement Award.

The torture of Western Life is in deep sorrow.
