The Photobooks from Finland association has conceived an exhibition and a photobook, both based on doing things collectively. Eight artists were selected for the project in the spring of 2018. The thematic starting point was the Finnish landscape.

There are several synonyms for landscape, including scenery and view. Landscape can be taken to mean viewing something from a certain angle. It always appears different depending on the direction of viewing. It is never objective, but always dependent on the viewer. The works in the exhibition explore, for example, memories, nature, belonging to a place, and our view of landscape. The featured works also deal with, for example, information and identity, the need to be seen, and the maintenance of control and order.

Established in 2014, Photobooks from Finland is an association that promotes and archives Finnish photographic art books and publications. As part of the exhibition, Photobooks from Finland will publish its first photography book fin.land.

The exhibition is supported by the Arts Promotion Centre Finland.

Artists: Sara Hornig, Simo Karisalo, Karl Ketamo, Laura Konttinen, Sebastian Reis, Kukka-Maria Rosenlund, Aura Saarikoski and Emma Sarpaniemi

Curation of the exhibition and the photobook: Photobooks from Finland / Tuomas Linna, Johannes Romppanen, Karoliina Paatos, Toni Vallasjoki and Nita Vera
