Default Hannu Pakarinen - 100 Finns in 100 Years

This might please Jarmo:
Hannu Pakarinen made a series of 100 Finns in 100 Years to celebrate the 100 years of Finnish Independence.

Have fun!

Impressive, Michael!

I like in particular how he uses architecture and agriculture to frame his subjects so well.

Agreed. Asher, or anyone else for that matter, how well do you feel you can relate to this work? I, as a Finn, see the intentions he had in mind, his depiction of the Finnish mindscape (whatever that might be). I'm just curious to know how other nationalities see Pakarinen's work.

I would need to understand the Finnish mindset better.

It was said of Grammy Award-winning Finnish conductor Esa-Pekka Salonen, if a He looks at his shoes he is an introvert, if he looks at your shoes, OTOH, he's a blazing extrovert!

Is that true at all?

Asher, I think that is both the stereotype of a Finn and the being we have been told we are. If you are to believe the papers and tv, we are a) very shy, b) extremely concerned to know how other people see us, c) hate small talk, d) love alcohol and sauna. I, or many of the people I know either by friendship, education or occupation do not fall into any of those categories, with the exception of probably d). Sure, we do not enjoy small talk but that does not make us rude or shy (which is what many foreigners think at a first glance). An American I happen to know once told me that he was told the Finns are cold and unfriendly. After having spent some time here he said he had found the opposite to be true. We are a relatively large country with very long distances and small population, so I suppose "nice weather today" was not probable not the first thing Finns of the old thought first when encountering a stranger, lol! And many of us are greatly proud of Esa-Pekka Salonen and even more of our National hockey team, of which I prefer the first.
