Everything’s The Same is a photo book by Otso Harju on the similarities in the socio-geographic atmosphere of Finnish coastal cities. It features over one hundred pages of sheer lovingly depressive, strangely beautiful (semi)urban Finnish summer. In the book we travel from Porvoo all the way to Kokkola, encountering little lost cats and ruby red night skies along the road. Welcome to Finland! The paperback book is printed on semi-glossy paper and wrapped in a matte cover that doubles as a poster. The nifty open binding lets the spreads open fully.
About the Artist
