Riita Ikonen- just trying to blend in

In her work, Riita Ikonen uses costumes, composition and humor to communicate her ideas. Some tackle the issue of global warming, and some more personal issues. The composition of the photos, specifically the solitude of the figure surrounded by space gives the viewer a sense of helplessness. It highlights a problem, and leaves the costumed figure stranded to figure it out on her own.
