Snapshots of another world

During a visit to the Rikhardinkatu library I flicked through Photo Raw’s latest edition and was immediately struck by the work of Meeri Koutoniemi, a Finnish freelance photographer.

Her snapshots of the lives of Mexican sex workers and men in a hospice for those with AIDS are simultaneously poignant and brutal and her images are captivating and thought provoking.

Meeri Koutoniemi's website lists an ongoing exhibition at Korjaamo and I think I may have a gander.
