Jyväskylä and its faces. Photographs by Pekka Helin

The exhibition of Pekka Helin, the long-time photographer of the Museum of Central Finland, takes you on a nostalgic voyage to the Jyväskylä of the 1980s and 1990s.
The documentary photographs in the exhibition lead you to the hustle and bustle of the city, the city environment, and events. The exhibition promises surprising encounters with ordinary citizens as well as public figures. "My pictures are documents which show the time of shooting and the spirit of the times. When I am taking pictures, there is always on my mind the fact that this place, view or similar looking people and cars are not going to be around any more in ten or twenty years’ time”, Helin tells. An exhibition of his photographs was last shown in the Museum of Central Finland in 1983. Picture: Bio Fantasia, Väinönkatu, 1980. Pekka Helin.
