Kersti on the shore

Our first ever shoot in Sweden! We got to escape our exhibition setup duties at the Finnish Institute for a day out in Nynäshamn with Kersti and her daughter Carolina. Kersti celebrated her 70th birthday with Eyes as Big as Plates on the windswept shores of Knappelskär, just outside of Stockholm.
