summer 2016 - 2018
Starting in 2016 I started taking long trips to Finland with my camera. I began in South Savo where my grandparents lived, in the dancehalls where people gather every summer to dance, drink and socialise. I drove around the country using the dancehalls as a destination and as a point of reference. Gas stations and carparks became locations of social gatherings for a different demographic.
I was spurred on by a search for a community in which I might fit or find comfort, but as I continued on my journey I found others who also found themselves on the outside looking in.
