I find it amazing that after twenty years of existence, the Helsinki School cannot be defined by any one fixed point of view. Conceptually there is a red thread connecting one generation to another in the way they perceive and present their ideas but not necessarily in how they apply them.
Timothy Persons (introduction)

Following the first four volumes of the Helsinki School, this new publication looks back at the development of this group of photographers over the past twenty years and traces the emergence of the photographic tendency bearing this name.

In a collection of essays, international curators, art critics, and museum directors describe their encounters with the Helsinki School, from the first exhibitions in the late nineties to the youngest generation of photographers. A discussion between Timothy Persons and Alistair Hicks concludes these contributions. The texts are accompanied by installation shots from numerous international exhibitions, archival materials, books, posters, invitations, and most recent works by the different generations of artists.

In 2010 more Americans were living below the poverty line than at any time since 1959, when the U.S. Census Bureau began collecting this data. In 2011, Kira Pollack, Director of Photography at Time, commissioned Joakim Eskildsen to photograph this growing crisis affecting nearly 46.2 million Americans. Based on census data, Eskildsen, together with journalist Natasha del Toro, travelled to the places with the highest poverty rates in New York, California, Louisiana, South Dakota and Georgia over seven months to document the lives of those behind the statistics. The people Eskildsen has portrayed — those who struggle to make ends meet, who have lost their jobs or homes and often live in unhealthy conditions—usually remain invisible in a society to which the myth of the American Dream still remains strong. Many of Eskildsen’s subjects hold there is no such dream anymore — merely the American Reality.
