Alfred Pitkanen’s life has been forever

changed by the discovery of two letters written

sixty years ago, on the eve of his father’s

death. ‘Letters from Karelia’ unravels the

story of Aate Pitkanen, an idealistic Finnish-

Canadian who moved to Soviet Karelia in the

1930’s to live the Communist dream until

Stalin’s purges and World War II changed

everything.

this one brings back memories, the orange box for the slides, the mailer… We’d have to pay extra for the half frame from the Pen FT. At some point I remember mounting my own, because some developing service or another stopped providing half frame slide mounts…

And I really wish I’d have saved some of those metal film canisters.
