"Unwritten history, memory, landscape"- Riitta Päiväläinen
"Several years ago, an old black dress made of velvet caught my attention in a second-hand shop. I examined the garment carefully. There was no label. The style of the dress was from the twenties. The seams revealed the dress was handmade. The owner of the shop told me that she had bought it in Paris. I tried the dress on and it fitted me perfectly. I became intrigued by the history of the dress. Who was the woman who had had the dress made? What was her life story? " - Riitta Päiväläinen

What a truly interesting idea for a photo series. I really like it, though.

Yah, I really like the story behind the stories, how many times you wonder what is the story behind the 2nd clothes of stuff that you purchased?

I've always wondered about the story behind it. Who was the person? Where is she now?
