In their own voice
Milja Laurila has a passion for the history of medicine and for patients as the subject of photography. Milja has been collecting pictures from medical files for ten years. This series is based on the pictures of unidentidied patients. The photographs were printed on a transparent acrylic glass, which gives and etheral aspect to the shapes. The bodies take shape in three dimensions thanks to the see-though material facing a wall.
