"The Ordinary Estonian" is a photobook with real life short stories that authentically and humorously capture today’s contemporary Estonian, their everyday life, soul and mindset. Created by Estonians using modern social media and crowdsourcing, the book covers all important aspects that characterize one nation. The concept of the book was created in collaboration with Karin Nemec, with whom we also self published both the English and Estonian version.  "The ordinary Estonian" is designed by Marje Eelma from the Estonian creative agency Tuumik.
