Hyvää syntymäpäivää, Suomi! Happy Birthday, Finland!

On December 6, Finland celebrates 100 years of independence from the Russian Republic. In honor of the occasion, photographer Hannu Pakarinen documented 100 Finns in 100 Years, meaning a Finnish citizen who was born in each year all the way back to 1917. The Finn for 2017 has not yet been born, but he/she is evident in a picture of his/her mother. Shown here is the Finn born in 2016. There's nothing that says "Finland" more than a baby sleeping outside, unless it's a baby sleeping in a box. Or would that classic picture of a Finn be someone in a sauna? In case you might need a warning, the man born in 1918 is nude, although technically SFW. See all the images here.  -via Metafilter
