Launch of Karelia by Noora-Mari Pelkonen & Third Edition

Cork Photo Gallery is pleased to invite you to the launch of

KARELIA

an exhibition by
Noora-Mari Pelkonen
6th April – 1st June

Noora Pelkonen creates a haunting story of the Finnish Karelians in exile, living in the deep forests, dreaming of the other forests over the Russian border: the ones they call home. Her pictures show us the precious objects they brought with them when they were exiled in the aftermath of war, and the way they now inhabit this this lost imaginary landscape where they really belong.

A photograph can be appreciated as a simple document, where interest relies heavily upon the object. The unfamiliar and exotic often capture our attention, yet these photographers present much more than this. In their own distinctive way, each present singular visions of reality, sharing stories of communities close to them.
