Catherine Balet: Strangers #3. From the series Strangers in the Light

August 2014


  • Never before have ordinary people generated such a wealth of photographs, and had the ability to share them with such wide audiences, as today. The Finnish Museum of Photography’s #snapshot exhibition sets out to update the snapshot concept. Consisting primarily of photographs taken by ordinary people, images sourced from the internet, historic snapshots and selfies as well as an overview of the history of the selfie, the exhibition also features new works by international artists commenting on the phenomenon.

    The exhibition is realised as an interactive experience both on-site and online. Visitors’ own images will be incorporated in the Curate your own life section, while the extensive programme of activities includes an instagramwalk and a selfie workshop.

    In co-operation with:
    The Finnish Museum of Photography, Futurice Oy, University of Tampere School of Communication, Media and Theatre (CMT)
