Kaisa Rautaheimo’s exhibition “Boys” captures young men looking for direction. At the Finnish Museum of Photography, Helsinki, through 27 March, 2016.
The newest exhibition at the Finnish Museum of Photography reveals moments from the lives of young Finnish men living in the outskirts of today’s success-driven society. The documentary photographs tell stories of detachment, of being an outsider, and of the search for meaning that we all go through in our lives.
Kaisa Rautaheimo has photographed men in their 20s “going through a phase”: some have dropped out of secondary education, others have never started their studies. Working life seems distant. The boys hope to find something meaningful, but they don’t know where to look for it, what to look for, and why.
The exhibition consists of 16 documentary photographs of these young men’s lives. In the exhibition, the photographs are combined with the boys’ thoughts as texts.
