Medical Records of a Small Town / Pikkukaupungin sairaskertomus
Medical Records of a Small Town is a study of an eccentric man: For the son, the artist Ville Lenkkeri (*1972), he is a dad, quite impossible to access. For the people in the small town deep in the Finnish woods he is a doctor in good reputation, always at service and known to be funny in a morbid manner. He is one of the last of that kind. For over thirty-five years he received the town folks and filled a large cabinet with their ailment records. He passed away on Sunday, after accomplishing his work on Friday. The publication tells the story of this man not only with photographs but also with stories of the inhabitants and writings of this eccentric. Ville Lenkkeri created a very personal homage to his father.
