Commented the band: "Looking for the photographer for Time I we went through many photographers' portfolios, but looking at Nana´s portfolio we instantly knew she had that extra something that would fit well with our new mix of oriental and traditional winter styles. She was very inspired with our ideas so we were really happy to work with her. We drove down to Turku (200 km away from Helsinki) where the photoshoot took place in her studio. We were shooting all day and the result turned out to be amazing, thanks to Nana's talent and vision, but also her stylists and assistants! We aimed for a magical winter and oriental look and we think we succeeded perfectly."
