Back to Jacopo Brancati Portfolios
Jäinen matka Suomen - Finland, 2008 Finland depends mainly on foreign trade by sea. Its coasts are protected by thousands of islets and dangerous shoals for navigation. Maritime pilots know the passes and safe access channels to ports. They have been ensuring the safety of ships and maritime traffic for centuries. In summer as in winter. And it is in winter that everything changes into a white landscape where the sea turns into a shell of ice. For three winters Jacopo Brancati lived with the Finnish pilots. His black and white classic photographic work, commissioned by the Maritime Museum of Finland, witnesses their work and their lives, during what the Finns call “Winter navigation”.
