Suomi Barbie – Lund and Gatska How would we visualize a middle-aged Finnish Barbie? What is she doing? Where and who is Ken? A collaboration between Ukrainian photographer Daria Gatska and Finnish photographer Aja Lund.

Was there something about their long hair, Daria’s dark and Aja’s blonde, that wanted to intertwine? They met at Novia University in Jakobstad where they studied photography and immediately realized that they liked going on spontaneous adventures. Many photo sessions have been completed where fantasy and reality and a strong friendship have been tied together.

Despite Daria moving to Porto, the contact between her and Aja has continued. When Daria came to visit Finland, she saw a pink plastic chair and got an idea for a photo series the same weekend that the Barbie movie premiered. Like Barbie doll plays where everything is possible, we have played on through our photo projects and made everything possible!

How would we visualize a middle-aged Finnish Barbie? What is she doing? Where and who is Ken? During a few intense days we searched for locations and props and went out into the Finnish countryside and found Ken in a grocery store.
We plan to continue the project with additional images and later visualize an Ukrainian Barbie.

What does your inner and outer Barbie look like? What is she doing?
