First Of May Celebrations! / by Jussi Ulkuniemi

 

First Of May Celebration (Vappu in finnish) is probably the most active and colourful day in Finland during Spring. Everywhere you look you can see people enjoying themselves, children and adults alike, bathing the in vivid colors of the air balloons.

This year I wanted to capture a small glimpse of this vibrant holiday, and we set out with Atte and Anna to photograph people in the street with a "studio-like" flashlight and a softbox. We only photographed for an hour (because the party mood kicked in!), but during that time we got some incredibly good-looking results.
