"A photograph is not a memory. It preserves an external resemblance to that which was, but it is not a memory. Neither is a photograph a story. The thread of memory can pass through a photograph. Nothing else.
The photographs in this book are associated with private reminiscences, memorabile from a long period of time. The images connect with experiences that I have had, they bring back events and sensory impressions. They recall the smell of seaweed on a shore, of railway sleepers and of newly washed rugs. I can taste sour apples, freshly fallen snow and water containing iron, or hear the sound of familiar voices, of barking dogs and of motorboats. I can feel the coolness after a late night swim, or the raw dampness of a November day on the shores of Helsinki." (text: Kristoffer ALBRECHT)
