Just Small Hiccups – Pieniä ilmakuoppia vain

“My father once told me that my world is like a black and white image, but I guess my heart has found it´s own colours.”

Photographer Anni Hanén began her Just Small Hiccups story after she moved back to her childhood home with her own family. She photographed the feelings that arose in the house full of memories, with it´s garden and the nearby forest. This photographic story is a poem, made from a deeply personal point of view, however portraying the universal feelings to understand life. With the pictures and texts it addresses growing up, how we see ourselves and each other in a family.
