Collectors from around the world are scrambling for photographs from Scandinavia, and the work of Janne Lehtinen (born 1970), one of Finland''s best young photographers, has been attracting attention for several years now. Lehtinen''s latest book, following "Sacred Bird" (2006) and "The Descendants" (2008), is set in a small city in Finland. Between January and December 2006, the photographer prowled its streets at night, camera in hand, capturing such melancholic images as a father getting off work at dawn following a long night shift. But in Lehtinen''s work, fact and fiction blend together; real events from the past are revived in staged images. Thus, as in his earlier, autobiographically tinged series of works, the images collected in "Night Shift" reveal poignant memories of childhood and make visible the bonds between generations.
From the Publisher:
Between January and December 2006, Finnish photographer Janne Lehtinen prowled the streets of a small city in Finland at night, camera in hand. In the process, he also took portraits of his father at six o'clock in the morning, just as he was coming off his night shift at a paper mill. Reality and fiction are blended; real events from the past are revived in staged pictures. As in his earlier, autobiographically tinged series of works, Lehtinen's photographs poignantly reveal the actualities of childhood and the bonds between the generations visible.
