He is so obsessed with me is a personal and expressive portrayal of the everyday life of a single and childless woman approaching her forties. The author photographed her life for one year, spontaneously and without staging. The book combines fact and fiction: the photos are documentary and “true” captures of various situations, where as the photographic narrative is held together by the imaginary He. He represents the look of someone else, of an imagined person, through whose eyes the main character is viewed – or photographed. The book is based on the mass of images and repetition. The single pictures as well as the photographic narrative as a whole aim at conveying experiences and emotions – directly, indirectly and symbolically. The main character and her daily actions form the frame for the book. The book begins intimately, showing an extremely private act. He is so obsessed with me is an alternative home album in a family oriented society, one depiction of a fairly large marginal. The book has been supported by the Arts Promotion Centre Finland.
