The photographic artists Satu Haavisto and Aino Kannisto enter into an artistic collaboration in the series Delicate Demons. Their models are ordinary women of different ages. At the heart of the photographic series lie the different and often conflicting experiences of womanhood. As artists, they are particularly interested in emotions and corporeality, and the expression of the links between them through photography.
