The Finnish museum of photography, Helsinki, FI
PBFF (Photobooks from Finland) has conceived an exhibition and a photobook, both based on doing things collectively. Eight artists were selected for the project in the spring of 2018. The thematic starting point was the Finnish landscape.

The works in the exhibition explore, for example, memories, nature, belonging to a place, and our view of landscape. The featured works also deal with, for example, information and identity, the need to be seen, and the maintenance of control and order.

The exhibition and publication is supported by the Arts Promotion Centre Finland.
