Photographer's Note

In Finland one of so called everyman's rights is the right to pick wild berries from nature. The picker is also allowed to sell them tax free. Traditionally this has been an important source of extra income in the countryside. Most important berries are cloudberry, blueberry and lingonberry (in the picture).
Nowadays this right is also utilized in larger scale. Berry dealers arrange working journeys for foreigners who arrive for a couple months to Finland. As a quirk of globalisation, most of these foreign pickers are farmers from Thailand.

(If you happen to be red-green colour blind you notice that picking lingonberries is probably not your thing.)
