“In the book, I mix and mold my family’s archival photographs, and photographs that I own or have found to find thoughts that deal with what I couldn’t otherwise verbalise”, Ville Kumpulainen writes. The layout of the book, divided in four chapters, leaves room for empty space, which skillfully builds association networks between the images. “The photographs grow roots from the reality to the unknown. Through my memories, I transfer my wounded essence into the elements and persons in the pictures.”

Out of Sight is a Finnish Photobook Award 2018 finalist.
