Nina Korhonen was born in 1961 in Tampere, Finland. Since 1981, she lives and works in Stockholm, Sweden.
The pictures in this book are from her first photography project. During her time as a photography student in Stockholm, she traveled to Brooklyn to visit her grandmother Anna and to tell the story of Finntown, a part of Brooklyn that in those days was inhabited by Finnish immigrants. On the weekends she visited Coney Island, photographing people swimming, adolescents roaming the beach, and families on picnic.
“Life and taking photographs were pleasurable, simple and unpretentious. This book is a tribute to all the people I met, and to that which was, which never will be again. Remember.”
