Susanna Kekkonen & Anna-Sofia Berner: Family album
January 30 - March 15, 2015
Family Album features a series of family portraits with children from divorced families. The main character of each photograph is a child whose parents have divorced. The idea has been to assign the power to define a family to the person who did not have this opportunity at the time of the divorce: the child.
