Nina Korhonen’s photographic series function as image-based voyages of self-discovery and have been published in books such as Rewind the Photographs and Anna. Regarding the latter, Korhonen boldly, in bright colors and dry humor, depicts her Finnish grandmother's life as an immigrant in the United States of America. Rewind the Photographs, meanwhile, is more subdued, as Korhonen documents the intimacies of her everyday life and relationships—for example, her partner is pictured with a cross mark on his chest in the moments before undergoing radiation treatment. Indeed, family members figure prominently in Korhonen’s work outside of Anna—her mother, father, and various children appear—and are portrayed vacationing, traveling, and at home. Likewise, Korhonen’s photographs highlight the natural world: Finnish lakes and forests, the coast of Galicia, and Chinese rock formations are all depicted.
Korhonen’s work has been exhibited throughout the world including at the Latvian Museum of Photography in Riga, the Perspektivet Museum in Tromsö, Norway, and the Fotografisk Center in Copenhagen, as well as Malmö ‘s Museer and Kommendanthuset.
