Nina Korhonen: Anna, Amerikan mummu

Memories form an important element in Nina Korhonen’s autobiographically motivated series of photographs. Starting from found colour snapshots of her grandfather, she develops her own history taken from the world of the “American way of life” at which in the centre is her grandmother who emigrated to the U.S. in 1959. In large format colour photographs a dialogue is created between two women from different generations.
