NEW!!! Living in Finland

Coming soon: Faces of Finland, see below


I have written and contributed photographs to several books, including a few English language teaching publications during 
my first years in Finland. More recently, A Baltic Odyssey - Exploring the Baltic Sea Region is a personal account of travels around 
the Baltic Sea region, and the remarkable changes that have taken place around the Baltic Rim in the last decade or so. 
It was published in Finland by Kustannus Oy Taifuuni in 1999, and remains one of the very few pieces of travel literature 
(as opposed to guide books) dealing with the region: unfortunately, it's currently out of print. Other books: two "coffee table" 
books about Helsinki: Helsinki Discoveries (Weilin+Göös,1987), with text and colour photos all by myself; and Helsinki: A City Journal 
(WSOY, 1998), with pictures by myself and text by Anne Roston-Korkeakivi. Another collaboration with Anne Roston-Korkeakivi 
was Images of Finland (WSOY, 1992). I have contributed to Fodor's and Insight guides to Finland. My latest project has been the 
text for a book for Editions Flammarion of Paris entitled Living in Finland, with photos by Swedish photographer Ingalill 
Faces of Finland is published in September 2006 and is a fresh and richly illustrated look at the country. Publisher: Yrityskirjat Oy, 
ISBN 952-9660-71-5.
