The Finnish Museum of Photography: Caj Bremer
THE FINNISH MUSEUM OF PHOTOGRAPHY: CAJ BREMER - FINNISH EVERYDAY LIFE
13.9.2019–5.1.2020, The Finnish Museum of Photography, Large exhibition space, Cable Factory
The classic series of photographs Finnish Everyday Life (1971) by Caj Bremer, who reinvented photojournalism in Finland, was brought to life after Bremer gave up his daily newspaper work to tour the country, supported by a grant from the Finnish Cultural Foundation.
Bremer wanted to photograph people in their own surroundings. He found the project allowed him to delve deeper into various themes than had been possible through his job at the newspaper, such as urbanization and the modernization of rural landscapes. The 1970s was the decade of socially aware photojournalism. Bremer, too, focused his camera on social injustices, such as the exploitation and destruction of nature.
