About

 

Noora Pelkonen is a Finnish photographer based in Brighton.

Her recent work concentrates on the act of remembering. Working with film and natural light, the work seeks to realise national and collective cultural memories; to evoke everyday temporality, and feelings of nostalgia and mourning.
