Kotimatkalla / På väg hem is an ensemble of two identically sized photo books packed together in one box. The diptych format supports the theme of the books: Pauliina Heinänen has learned about the experiences of both her grandmother and grandfather as Finnish war children in Sweden. What kind of a trace does rootlessness leave in a person? The photographer approaches the questions of trauma through sensitive, symbolic images and short texts, vividly piecing together various materials through graphic design. The craft-like binding gives the personal and emotional book its final touch.

Kotimatkalla/På väg hem is a Photobook Award 2020 finalist.
