Exhibition ´Catch Me´  takes us to the homes of disabled children

From September 13th to November 10th we invite you to visit the Juhan Kuus Documentary Photo Centre and take a closer look at the people living around us. Photo exhibition “Catch me” is part of the project titled The Different that has been in process for three years. It takes us to the homes of disabled children in different countries. Together the photographs by Jyri Pitkänen and the stories by Eveliina Talvitie create a bigger entity of reality and emotion showing everyday life as it is without the aspect of pity or heroism.

Jyri Pitkänen (born in 1979, Helsinki, Finland) is a photographer, visual artist and documentarian who has dealt with marginal groups of society, consumer society, his own family, and his relationship with religion in his works, among other things. Pitkänen has also worked as an art instructor for young disabled people and photography teacher.

Eveliina Talvitie (born in 1970, Pori, Finland) is a journalist and an author who is known for her feminist non-fiction books. In the summer of 2019, she published her debut novel. Talvitie has previously worked as a news editor, television presenter, and public relations manager.

Exhibition partners: The Nordic Council of Ministers, SOL, Finesta, Finnish Institute
