Photographer Anni Hemminkinen (1879–1966), or ‘Miss Hemminkinen’, as she was commonly known, worked as a travelling photographer in the Punkaharju ridge area in the first half of the 20th century. Anni was, above all, a photographer of people, but instead of the studio, she took most of her photographs outdoors, with her subjects’ homes and the region’s landscape of natural beauty as her backdrop. Over the years, Anni’s glass plates have captured numerous locals and visitors to the ridge, especially in the Laukansaari, Tuunaansaari, Pöllänsaari, Kulennoinen and Vaahersalo areas.
The exhibition is being held in two places: photos are exhibited both at Hotel Punkaharju and at Lusto, and it is open until the end of 2018. It has been produced by Lusto as part of the Punkaharju cultural association’s 3-year Kotiseutuna kansallismaisema (‘Living in a national landscape’) project (2017–2019), which is funded by the Piällysmies association.
