Revolving around the experience of fishing for pike in midwinter, Female Pike is a native son's study of rural Finnish people and their culture. Documentary/editorial in nature, the work has a sympathetic quality that comes only from an intimacy with the language and life these people live. Mannikko's color photography is shimmering at times and gorgeously muted at others, carrying the quiet paradox of despair and acceptance that pervades all rural towns, whether in North America or, in this case, Finland. The printing in this book is extremely luscious. 143 pages; color plates throughout; 10.25 x 9.75 inches. Text in In English and Finnish.
