Mother
I touch your forehead, its gentle, craggy surface


Raakel Kuukka’s first solo exhibition I touch your forehead, its gentle, craggy surface (Photographic Gallery Hippolyte 1985) consisted of portraits of her mother, who was ill with cancer, and of her sisters and her sister’s daughter Agneta, along with close-ups of home textiles and tables. All the pictures were taken in her childhood home in Muhniemi.
