Antero Tenhunen' photographs on Mänttä pulp mill
Antero Tenhunen's photograph exhibition documents the the closed-down pulp mill in 1993. The still atmosphere tells about the restructuring of the Finnish paper industry that Mänttä experiences among the first towns in the early 1990s.
Photographer Antero Tenhunen shot Metsä-Serla Oy's pulp mill in Mänttä in April 1993 or two years after its close down. He disposed of a Sinar monorail camera which is rare in Finland and which produces images resembling a detailed line drawing.
The products of G. A. Serlachius Oy
The vitrines near the photographs of Tenhunen showcase products of G.A. Serlachius Oy that have been made of cellulose. During the past decades samples of every day paper products that are familiar from home, office and public places have been saved.
Curator Milla Sinivuori-Hakanen has compiled the exhibition from the object collection of the Serlachius Museums.
