On November 7, 2007 occured what has come to be called the Jokela School shooting. At lunch time Pekka-Eric Auvinen had went to the school in Jokela and shot eight people and then himself.

I was watching the news on tv in the early evening when I got a call from an agency. They wanted me to do a personal series on the tradgedy during the next couple of days. I drove to Jokela and started to photograph. The next day I went back and then again a few days later.
