Last weekend 15.–16.10. we had intensive making and publishing a photo zine in The Finnish Museum of Photography. It was the release no. 1 of the serial.
Contributing photographers chose a place in Helsinki and shot 100 photos. In the zine is presented one photo from each. I chose my childhood neighbourhood Mellunmäki where I never visited after moving out 1990.
It was an interesting afternoon to match and mix the photos from each. It was the typical moment when you can’t choose the best singles, but the best match to be one unique project.
The atmosphere of the zine is the same as Finnish autumn: melancholic, calm and full of details.
The best part of the project was sewing it all together – in a literal sense. We used the legendary risography print that was working over night (and also our curator). We were cutting, folding and sewing the pages together to be limited edition of the very first number of upcoming series of HETI-zine.
You’ll find your copy of HETI-zine from The Finnish Museum of Photography (limited edition).
