A word from the folklore collector

Kainuu is strange. In 2003, it inspired me to take a research trip to the birthplace of my family. Gradually, I developed an idea of a communal cultural anthropology study and a work of art that encompasses all facets of life in Upper Kainuu from Russo-Swedish wars of the late 16th century (1570-1595) to this day.
