"Finnish society became urbanised more rapidly than almost any other in Europe. Just fifty years ago, three out of four Finns lived in the countryside, making their living from the land - or the forest. Today this applies to only one in three people, and since Finland joined the European Union, their ranks have thinned even further. Those who have remained in the countryside now have their backs to the wall - which is precisely where the photographer has put them for the pictures in this book." (jacket front flap) .
