Since June I’ve been working as a reporter for a local newspaper Keski-Uusimaa. The newspaper consists of the Middle Uusimaa area of Järvenpää, Tuusula and Kerava.

As it comes naturally, I usually take the photos for my articles. The photos I’ve taken are almost always portraits of people, as that’s how our newspaper works – and that’s what people are interested in; other people. Thus I thought that it’d only be suitable to start a brief series of portraits on a monthly basis.

Now that I’m on a sick leave due to a broken leg, I’ve got time to curate the said photos. And to avoid any problems, yes, I’ve confirmed from the newspaper’s editor-of-chief that publishing the photos in an internet publication such as is completely fine.
