Celebratory exhibition of school photography in Hämeenlinna


It is still possible to see the “Oh, those were the Days” photo exhibition organized by the Finnish School Photography Association in Hämeenlinna. The exhibition is open in the Finnfoto Gallery at shopping center Goodman until 31.5. The photo exhibition offers an opportunity to study how the 160-year-old Finnish school photography has developed over time and how it has maintained its position as an important tradition.

”Almost every Finn has been depicted in a school photo at some point. Few other photos are preserved as carefully as school photos from different years. They tell a story of you, your friends and your class, with whom you shared the school years of your childhood and youth.”

Exhibition venue: Finnfoto Galleria
Shopping center Goodman, 2nd floor
Address: Kaivokatu 7, 13100 Hämeenlinna
Opening hours: weekdays 7am-9pm, Sat 8am-7pm, Sun 11am-7pm. The exhibition is free of charge.
