The exhibition includes the most famous works of the 1960's, made in a critical historic period for Finns.
Portraits of Ismo Hölttö are a unique material. And touching fragments of the recent past, captured by the master, reflect the real-life stories of people who lived then.
Hölttö was able to show on people's faces the sadness that was associated with the uncertainty of a difficult time. Indeed, the rapid social changes that took place in that period, led to the national tragedy, which forced people to leave their homes to seek work.
Thin and accurate pictures of Ismo Hölttö stretch an invisible timeless thread binding the people in portraits and modern audience. The characters in the pictures the 50-year-old tell their life stories to those who are willing to understand them.
