My quest to find interesting and convenient urban locations for the colder months continues: this time we tried the roof top of the new shopping centre REDI, just a couple of metro stops from the centre of Helsinki. The day was cold and snowy, but we could easily pop indoors to warm up every few shots, which was great!

I was very happy that Chono — a beautiful Helsinki-based young model from Zambia — had agreed to pose for us! The contrast between the snow flakes and Chono's skin tone is so striking that it makes these photographs very powerful, don't you agree? I really hope to be able to shoot with Chono again, perhaps on a warmer day next time!
