I came to Finland's smallest town in the summer of 2019 to rest and be alone for a while. However, the stillness I found there struck me as unusual and strange instead. The uneventful and sterile small town life and the permanent daytime together created a surreal state where I felt as if time ceased to flow.

Krisztian Kosa is a late bloomer. He was organising papers and filling out spreadsheets before taking up a camera at 42. In 2020 he completed a course in Press photography with the Hungarian National Association of Journalists. Traces of documentarism and street photography can both be found in his artistic perspective. He has been addicted to street photography for 4 years now.
