SIRKKA-LIISA KONTTINEN @ L. Parker Stephenson Photographs
SIRKKA-LIISA KONTTINEN The Hoppings + Byker Revisited
January 30 – April 4, 2015
The exhibition includes work from two series:The Hoppings, once Great Britain’s largest traveling fair and Byker Revisited, the sequel to a chronicle of a neighborhood transformed by wholesale redevelopment. After arriving in the northeast of England from her native Finland in 1969 (via film school in London) Konttinen, a founding member of the Amber Collective, set about documenting the region with her camera. She has done so for over forty years, earning recognition from UNESCO for her contributions to Great Britain’s national and cultural history.
