The Flashback 2011 photograph book wraps up the year 2011
Turku’s year as the European Capital of Culture has now been packaged into a photograph book, which enables you to relive 2011 and return to your fondest memories.
The Flashback 2011 photograph book in three languages wraps up the delightful offerings of Turku’s year as European Capital of Culture. The pictures take you from the River Aura to the open sea, from Logomo to living rooms and from the pool to the roofs of the city. The basic elements of life – fire, water, air and earth – lead you back towards the darkening season, and the review of the year concludes in the light extravaganza of the Thank You weekend in the middle of a dark December.
In the course of the year, more than 100,000 photos of great events and memorable moments were captured by photographers commissioned by the Turku 2011 Foundation. The book contains the best shots taken by nearly 70 photographers.
In addition to impressive photographs, the book includes media comments on Turku and the Capital of Culture Year.
The book costs 20 euros (rrp) and is sold in Turku at the Academic Bookstore, Kansallinen Kirjakauppa and Suomalainen Kirjakauppa as well as The Turku Local Heritage Association's Föri shop and The Museum Centre of Turku's museum shops. It can also be purchased from Turku Touring’s Online Shop.
