A photo book Giveaway
Global Yodel contributor, Wilma Hurskainen, from Helsinki Finland, was kind enough to send in a couple copies of her photo book, Heiress. – Thanks Wilma! – Wilma Studied photography at Lahti Institute of Design and Aalto University in Helsinki. She works both as a freelance photographer for commissioned assignments and as an independent artist. I love her work and think she is creating some very unique stuff.
There is an essay by Ann-Christin Bertrand in the book. And here is what has been said about this book. “Like poems, Wilma Hurskainen’s photographs perceptively link poetry with humour and open up spaces of associations to own experiences of the spectator. In her No Name series, Hurskainen, who has strong connections with the Helsinki School, explores the themes of childhood and memory. Childhood and adulthood are present, like layers, in the same photograph. By loosely attaching texts to the images, Hurskainen recreates memories (including those that are false and invented) and continues their visual representation. Her main objective is to find out and question how a text and a photograph mediate a story.”
Alright who wants copy of this awesome book? To win just leave a comment below this post for Wilma. Check out her site and let us know what you like about her work. Personally, I am in love with her ‘chameleon’ photos, where the subjects clothing and the landscape blend into one. If you head over to our Twitter feed, follow us, and tweet about this giveaway, I will count that as two additional entries. Just be sure to tag @globalyodel so I know. I will choose two winners on Friday, November 16th.
