Nowhere (2012)

Three weeks in trains, busses and places across the snowy Finnish landscape. The cities, the streets, the buildings and rooms, the people and the things they do, the dancing and the wandering. The journey through places that I have grown up in, the memories that they evoke, and the sense of dislocation and nostalgic reverie that radiates from these same places and people. It’s a coming home of sorts.
