Storybook Helsinki and Beyond
is a genre-bending book that delights the eye and tells a tale.
Hundreds of gorgeous, darkly colorful photos by young
Romanian artist, Octavian Bâlea, are woven with the light
and tender voice of Cody Douglas Oreck, wife of the
American Ambassador to Finland, to bring an
outside/inside view into a particularly rich aspect
of Finnish culture, its brave history
and its astonishing design.

This book is a photography book made by Octavian Balea on the text
of Dan Gheorghe, about the romanian language schools

of Transnistria, somewhere in the space
of the former Soviet Union.
