Neighbours, 2013-2014
Project info

Neighbours is inspired by the remote place in Finland where I have my family roots. The area is flat and rural, and has seen many previous inhabitants be drawn towards larger cities and towns, leaving their old homes to stand empty. By looking at failed attempts to settle, these images intend to explore the tension between nature and inhabitation, as well as that particular kind of spatial and temporal stasis specific to some remote areas. Rather than being a portrayal of an actual space these images show a perceived space, and sit somewhere on the border between reality and fiction.
