What are the things that make everyday life good? A series of documentary photographs by Julius Koivistoinen (born 1990) of daily life of various Helsinki residents links the people and their surroundings in a cinematic manner.
“My aim is to create scenes that absorb the viewer for longer than a mere glimpse, and to achieve that I'm combining elements from art and documentary genres and using advanced lighting techniques. At first my point of view was purely visual. After some time, however, I noticed that the people I stopped on the streets and photographed had certain common characteristics. They all radiated some kind of positive energy; self-confidence, great warmth of heart, or simply, they were ready to smile to a complete stranger the moment we met.”
