Description

Ola Kolehmainen’s photographs are extraordinarily minimal and almost exclusively depict sections of building facades. They are organized according to strict principles of order, showing rows of repetitive basic patterns or symmetrical constructs. The Minimalist austerity of these images is occasionally broken by elements that circumvent this formalism: trees or houses mirrored in the facades. Kolehmainen’s works are produced using the Diasec process, which means that the environment is reflected in the surface of the photos as well as in the images themselves—a calculated component of his work. This volume presents many new, previously unpublished photographs, including two monumental five- and eight-part works by the artist.
