'Finnish Youth' by Jouko Lehtola

Jouko Lehtola is considered as one of the greatest Finnish photographers of the 1990s. He passed away in 2010 but his camera had become a neutral third eye in capturing the lives of Helsinki's '90s teenagers. Now, Lehtola's most memorable and compelling images are being honored in a book titled Finnish Youth.

The 50-page photobook is a "thick documentation of red mohawks, patched leather jackets, greasy hair and Coca Cola-imbued moments from the 90s and early 00s – one that opens a window onto the fleeting moments of Finnish youth."
