Unemployment is a phenomenon when people in our society don't have a job for different reasons. In September 2021, around 191,000 people were unemployed in Finland, according to a labor force survey by Statistics Finland. These images show my personal and artistic take on unemployment, where I expressed my thoughts using a model. This was a part of a bigger school photography project called "TYÖ" (work).
