Imaginary Homecoming

Published by: Pohjoinen Publications, 1999
Format: Hardcover
Artist: Jorma Puranen
Language: English / Finnish
ISBN 9517493274

A book by Jorma Puranen, inspired by and drawing on an archive of late 19th-century portraits of the Sami people of Lapland at the Musee de l’Homme in Paris. Puranen traveled to the original source of the images in Northern Norway and reinserted his rephotographed images of the portraits in the Northern landscape, creating a sort of dialogue between past and present, and both a tapestry and continuum of existence, with portraits standing in for present-day Sami and appearing on trees, rocks, water, snow. Like much of contemporary Finnish photography that is conceptual, the body of work is extremely layered and resonant, both intellectually rigorous and emotional.
