Leena Kela & Suvi Parrilla (FI): Professional teenagers – photographs

The photographs displayed within the underground parking facilities are a part of Kela and Parrilla’s Professional Teenagers -photography project that explores the development of young people’s identity and the symbolism of leaving one’s mark within youth culture by means of photography and video. Kela and Parrilla are especially interested in the enhancement of gender identity and the manifestation of this as a form of body art.
