IN THE FRAME
“I am a 22-year-old Finnish girl from Helsinki who has been living and studying in Dublin Ireland for the past three years. photographer and a filmmaker who has just graduated from college (Griffith College Dublin) earning my BA in Arts specialising in Photographic Media.
For my final year project, I wrote and photographed a book called The Miraculous Magic of Everything that is a classic storybook creating a new world following the traditional language of fairy tales.
The stories, however, do not contain princesses in trouble and knights in shining armours, but strong female characters and vulnerable Kings with a diverse range of characters from ethnicity to sexual orientation, highlighting the importance and urgent need for equal representation.
The project aims to empower the reader no matter who they are, who they want to be, what they look like or who do they identify as, but celebrate acceptance, representation and inclusion.
