Fishshot is a photographic and audiovisual documentary project, which shows the hardest and least known Finland’s reality. A country that stands for quality of life but at the same time hides high rates of suicide, homicide and violence. The excessive consumption of alcohol is present in more than half of the mentioned cases. A problem rooted in Finnish society that causes, directly or indirectly, a huge number of deaths among the population.
A subjective look that is based on the geographical and social environment surrounding the individual and the experience gathered in the country: the emotional isolation, emotional repression and exaltation of self-sufficiency largely explain the causes of their problems.
Photographically we dive into the dark side of this society, trying to suggest with images what the Finns themselves are unable to convey in words. Their fears and their nightmares. The conditions of their daily lives and their struggle to overcome them. The pride and melancholy that define their race.
