Henrik Duncker’s visual proposal for a survival handbook. Witty observations and peculiar humour cooked into a nice small paperback. Pictures from the Moscow Millionaire Fair, the Finnish city named Nokia, the Latvian countryside and many other places. Covering about 10 years of European life, these picks from editorial assignments and Henrik’s personal work are carefully laid out in a photo essay about the limitations of human life. 82 colour photographs. Essay by Karlis Verpe.

Henrik Duncker was born in Helsinki 1963. He holds a Master of Arts from the University of Art and Design, Helsinki. He lives in Helsinki and works as an independent photographer and artist.

The Latvian Centre for Contemporary Art is an internationally active non-governmental culture organization that offers an independent perspective on current topics and recent historical events through the looking glass of art.
