Finland effectively shuts down for a period of nine months. Nine fascinating months, according to the Finnish photographer Jussi Puikkonen. During this period the inhabitants of Finland disappear into their nice warm homes, leaving the holiday destinations completely deserted. The beautiful pictures of empty swimming pools, beach clubs and funfairs show how the atmosphere of these now redundant places transforms into awkward and eerie. The way Puikkonen makes use of the bright and sunny colored objects in the pictures creates a strong contrast. With a stylish composition and printed on thick, glossy paper, this book is simply a feast for the eyes.
