Johannes Pääsuke (March 30, 1892–January 8, 1918) was an Estonian photographer and filmmaker. He worked as a photographer for the Estonian National Museum beginning in 1912 and made several photographic series of rural Estonia. Best known is his photographic survey of the North Estonian coast, Muhumaa and Saaremaa islands, taken from June 10 to July 29, 1913.

A considerable amount of his photographs were made in parallel with filmmaking, with both cameras within his reach.

This exhibition was organized by the Estonian Embassy in Washington, DC, Estonian National Museum and Tartu Art College. Brought to the SCC in cooperation with the Boston Estonian Society.
