In 2006 Dina Kantor began photographing the small Jewish community in Finland as a way of investigating the ways photography contributes to the construction of identity and community.  In addition to being a visual record, Kantor’s images function as a sociological document exploring how Finnish Jews live, work and practice their religious traditions. She writes: “I use the camera to record cultural signifiers and traditions as they blend, as well as to depict the physical characteristics of a hybridized community.”
