Mutual Issues, Inventive Acts

Mutual Issues, Inventive Acts (2008) is a photographic series based on precise observations of daily life on streets of Istanbul. In the photographs, the scenes – for example, a man trying to repair a street lamp by standing on two ladders, one on top of the other – were restaged in Helsinki. These practical ideas for adversities of all kinds seem, at first glance, rather absurd, but they point to the conditions under which people live in their respective social and economic contexts.
