Finnish artist Jaako Heikkila has long been interested in various small and minority communities around the world. Here he meets people on the shores of the White Sea in Russia, in New York's Harlem and on the Brazilian island of Itaparica. He follows Armenians from their homeland to Los Angeles and Venice, listening to the history of their family three generations after the genocide of 1915. His empathy for his many subjects appears in the intimate and poetic portraits he creates with a panoramic camera. They are an expression of peoples' rights and freedom.
