HELSINKI facelift

PHOTOGRAPHY EXHIBITION Virka Gallery, Helsinki

Photographer Soili Mustapää took photographs of her Facebook friends at different locations around Helsinki, exploring the dimensions of the portrait on social media. Mustapää wanted to find out what else a profile picture could be besides a mirror selfie shot with a mobile phone, a picture from an old photo album showing a middle-aged person longing after his or her youth, or perhaps a cartoonish image of a superhero. Could the methods of traditional portrait photography make a contribution in this area, or would it be possible to discover something entirely new?
