City of light

Relationships between Nordic people and light have always been special. Finish people live with almost no sunlight during the long winters and then nature gives them 24 hours of it in the summers. I spent one month in the region of Jyväskylä, Finland, trying to convey this intense contrast in light conditions and its impact on everyday people’s life. I’m focusing on the power of light to re-shape and transform, both physically and psychologically. The light was my main subject and my creative tool at the same time. I used only natural light to еxpress this almost magical feeling created by the Indistinguishable line between day and night. Light is an inexhaustible source of miracles for the people in Finland, who has almost loving relationship with it.

The project was exhibited in Finland by Äkkigalleria in October 2017
