OF THE HOUSE I GREW UP IN... HELSINKI / ULAANBAATAR

Of the House I Grew Up in…, combines documentary photographs of ger districts of Ulaanbaatar with a narration depicting my own childhood environment in a suburb of Helsinki in the 1970s.  The photographs derive from walking interviews I did with Mongolians who lived or had lived in ger districts and were showing me their own neighbourhoods and telling their memories of them. While listening to the stories I realised that there was much of the same experience I had had in the half-developed suburb that I grew up in.
