WHO: Helen Korpak. Born in Finland in 1989, Korpak is already making quite a splash across the pond. Next month, her work will be part of a group show featuring female photographers in Portland, Oregon. A current student at Aalto University, Korpak says of her work that she has created "a map of the emotions in everyday life and an investigation [of] the different aspects of life. I balance between facelessness and intimacy, and aim for honesty."
