Pictures of woman´s most sacred

Brasilian Franco Bubani lives in Haihatus and photographs bedrooms

Franco Bubani staying in artist residence at Art Center Haihatus changed the brazilian heat to finnish frost, but not without reason. He is going to photograph a hundred women in their own bedrooms within his Europe tour.

His portray trip is heading to Germany, Holland, Portugal, France and Spain. Starting the portraying in Finland was a right decission in Franco Bubani´s mind.

I wanted to come to Finland, because this is one of the best places to live. There are good political, ecomic and educational conditions. You finnish people are in priviliged position.

Frost and snow have not made Franco Bubani to regret his coming. - I come from the city of Belo Horizonte in the state of Minais Gerais in the middle ground of Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo. The mean temperature there is 24 degrees and I have never been in the temperature below zero degrees. The frost and snowy sceneries have opened my mind to to see the world in a new way.

Franco Bubani thinks that finding the Haihatus Residency was also a stroke of luck.

- Merja Metsänen and Raimo Auvinen have helped me in many practical issues. With their help I have received many contact to different directions, thanks Franco Bubani.

Contacts he needs in his photograph project of portraying women in their own bedrooms. He is looking for bedrooms where are no signs of men.

- When a person is photographed in her own environment she has no masks. Then she is her own shelf. A bedroom is a human´s most intimate place. It tells a lot of a human herself. When taking photos of women in their bedrooms I have no beauty ideals or other expectations. I take photos of what comes in front of me, sais Franco Bubani.

Voluntaries to be portrayed has Franco Bubani began to receive by Haihatus website and other releases.

- Finnish women are willing to show themselves. They are not ashamed of their bedrooms, but are very proud of them. It is very beautiful and strong, praises Franco Bubani.

He has already portrayed women in their bedrooms in Jyväskylä and Helsinki. Portray targets have found also in closer area for example in Joutsa and Sysmä.

Franco Bubani is going assemble an exhibition of his photos in every country his photographing. Compilation of Finnish images will be exhibited as a part of the Haihatus summer exhibition.
