10/19/11 Reception for photographer Miina Savolainen’s exhibit “The Loveliest Girl in the World” Wednesday night at the Embassy of Finland.

“The Loveliest Girl in the World is a photography project unique in scope, realized by artist Miina Savolainen who portrayed ten girls growing up in a children’s home. The overlooked and mistreated girls were photographed on their own terms in order for the girls and those around them to appreciate their worth. The idea for the project was borne out of Miina Savolainen´s understanding that verbal communication was not a sufficient tool to heal children whose trust had been broken with words.”

The exhibit runs until November 13th.
