The work of Ola Kolehmainen is displayed in large format photographs the recurrent subjects of which are space, color and volume. He uses architectural photography as a starting point of his research which transforms the thing seen into abstract motifs. The clinical coldness of the subject, the precise and meticulous framing, as well as the absence of people, are inspired by the German Documentary School, called “The Düsseldorf School”. For Ola Kolehmainen, architecture is only a pretext for catching light and its reflections. The buildings don’t exist for themselves but as the raw material of his art.
