Giedrius Bagaliunas - Days in Finland, Kokola

Damn, time goes fast. I really enjoyed this week and I am happy I could meet so many great peoples.

I have put lots of energy to make all tasks completed, still, I chose only few I really liked and wanted to show to you.

Moving pictures

On Thursday afternoon the Finnish dance students invited the visiting photography students to their rehearsals.

The dancers gave a small impromptu performance to show what they have been doing this autumn. As the music changed from classical to rock the photographers got a chance to see many different aspects of contemporary dance. And - off course - take pictures.

Train Station Tikkurila

Tutor Tomas had to guard groups bags for two hours until the train came, so he decided to create himself a comfortable workspace.

The atmosphere in Tikkurila train station.

People in Finland seem busy.

Two hours of waiting was too much for some of us.

Citizens of Earth, Welcome to Finland!

After long period of planning this years Shared Visions comes to reality when photography students from Vilnius, Lithuania come to Finland to study in Kokkola for a week.
It will be a busy week. Lithuanian and Finnish students will be working together and learning from each other.
On Tuesday we’ll be taking a trip to a nearby island called Ohtakari and  Wednesday we will visit the central of Kokkola. We hope the surprisingly early winter will not slow us down.
This week is about showing and sharing your own point of view. Students can pursue their own interest in photography and choose whether they like to use computers and work digitally or do photos traditionally in the darkroom.  
The theme for this years Shared Visions projects is “Citizens of Earth”. We wanted to focus on the climate issues and also how it feels to live in this world. What kind of challenges of modern citizenship we face in this global world of ours.
