The metaphorical finale of the photo magazine THE OPÉRA

Wilma Hurskainen

Like poems, Wilma Hurskainen’s photographs perceptively link poetry with humour and open up spaces of associations to own experiences of the spectator. In her No Name series, Hurskainen, who has strong connections with the Helsinki School, explores the themes of childhood and memory. Childhood and adulthood are present, like layers, in the same photograph. By loosely attaching texts to the images, Hurskainen recreates memories (including those that are false and invented) and continues their visual representation. Her main objective is to find out and question how a text and a photograph mediate a story.
