(selected for The National Portrait Gallery's Photographic Portrait Prize, exhibiting from November 4, 2008- February 15, 2009) Hirvas Salmi, FINLAND. October 15, 2007- A father and his 7 year old daughter scan the galloping reindeer in search of their calves. The Sami herding lifestyle struggles to maintain its force in numbers with lower wages and a demanding work schedule. Very few youth seek a future as a full time herder.
