    OLD FINNISH PEOPLE WITH THINGS ON THEIR HEADS Almost a year ago I discovered this photo series at Kiasma – The Museum of Modern Art in Helsinki, Finland. Photographers, Karoline Hjorth and Riitta Ikonen came up with something truly peculiar and special, in their photo series Eyes As Big As Plates. Their subjects are old, super serious and Finnish, all while wearing ridiculous “organic” head pieces and attire…need I say more?

In the wonderful Finnish tradition of not explaining oneself, here are some spectacular images of old Finnish people with things on their heads. Photographers, Karoline Hjorth and Riitta Ikone came up with a truly unique and beautiful photo series, Eyes As Big As Plates.

Riitta: Inspired by the romantics’ belief that folklore is the clearest reflection of the soul of a people, Eyes as Big as Plates started out as a play on characters and protagonists from Norwegian folklore.
