I was an apple and I got peeled – but it was a good thing is a sevenyear play with and for the camera. The protagonists of the book are Kiiski’s daughters and the intimate surroundings at home, summer houses and residencies from Finnish archipelago to Venice. The photo series juxtaposes private life with art history and different genres of photography. It talks about the most banal of subjects: time and the experience of it. The series is about the ontology of materials and everyday objects as well as one’s relationship to a camera. Everything makes sense – not necessarily in a way that can be verbalized, but according to some secret internal logic that unravels very slowly and never entirely.
