Picture Path

The Finnish Museum of Photography, Helsinki

  • 4.10.2022–31.12.2022

Picture Path is an outdoor photography exhibition created by the pupils of Jtksaari Comprehensive School.


What photographs and messages would you like to see in the urban space? And what type of images are created from words or what kind of words do images produce?

Pupils from Jtksaaren peruskoulu were pondering these and other questions in workshops organized by the Finnish Museum of Photography in the spring of 2022. During the workshop, the students took photos based on the following words: flowers, summer, mirrors, mustaches, peace and safety. In addition to their own images, the students have selected images from the museums collections to display on the underpass columns.


Although children and young people photograph more than ever before, they need guidance in visual culture, where viewing, showing, taking pictures, interpreting, valuing and imagining play a key role. In this project, children and young people are seen as artists and active actors in relation to their own immediate environment and its well-being. With the exhibition, the children's and young people's own visual culture will have a prominent and long-lasting place in the public, urban space.
