|Helsinki-based Wilma Hurskainen asked her three sisters to recreate about 30 older photographs that her father had taken of them when they were children. This photo project called Growth from 2004-2006.
"I have always been very attracted by the photograph's ability to cross time and create this kind of comparisons," she says. "There is something sad, almost tragic, about looking at old photographs compared to new ones and seeing how people and things have changed or grown up. After all, it is said that time has been accepted as a common means of measuring life because people are not able nor willing to see the change in themselves. In the pictures it seems as if we were trying to go back to our childhood by adopting the same position towards each other and the photographer's/spectator's gaze but we unavoidably fail. We have to fail – there is no return in time. "
