SAFE DISTANCE

A visual diary of the streets of Helsinki.

Abstract silhouettes and turned backs. Deserted public places. Geometric shades of grey. Occasionally disturbed by unruly tyre tracks or footprints. People rushing to trains or walking to unknown places.

An inventory of observations: a mannequin with a golden mask; a portrait of the president; contours of a mother and child next to a sorry apparition.

Comforting yet uncomfortable solitude. Everything observed from a safe distance.
