Helsinki – People Make the city
In 2016 I created a concept for a book titled Helsinki – People Make the City, which I also photographed. The book was first published in 2016 by Cozy Publishing and it is full of stories from the capital’s creative makers and doers – the people who make the city. Written in English, it is a representation of the Nordic way of life intended for those visiting the city or wanting to discover and experience Helsinki on a whole new level. The third – and revised – edition was published in 2017.
"A MUST FOR THOSE VISITING AND LIVING IN HELSINKI."
DEKO MAGAZINE, 06 2016
Explore the city with local residents who share a perfect day spent in their neighborhood. Discover the Nordic way of life and explore the best of local design, food and art. Then take a piece of the city with you and devour the flavors by trying the secret recipes back home.
