Finnish teens

It is a photo series about identity, change and the desire to find your own place in this world.

While photographing the series I was lost with my own life and identity because the sudden death of my brother.

Most of the young people in these photographs are still living with their parents, while their own identity is rapidly changing at the same time, so that serious conflicts can arise with the value systems of their childhood homes.

This is a story about waiting. Waiting to find yourself again.



Aki Pekka Sinikoski (Finland)

In Finland, every summer night he made a bonfire and people gathered around him and told new stories. He listened and memorized these stories, and after the summer he would tell them to his friends in the city.

Now he continues to collect stories and tell them to others with the help of his photos.
