The Finnish photographer Ola Kolehmainen graduated from the Department of Journalism at the University of Helsinki in 1992, and had his first exhibit in 1994. In 1999, he graduated from the MA in Photography at the University of Art and Design at Helsinki (now called Aalto University). Kolehmainen chooses large-format images of modern architectures, façade details or elements of an interior room. As opposed to architectural photography, it doesn’t interest him that the buildings be recognized. By means of a selection of details, he creates his own style which comes to be abstract compositions.
