Ola Kolehmainen
A Building is not a Building Preview

Ola Kolehmainen is a Finnish photographer whose work was originally introduced to British audiences in Magnetic North, a group exhibition at The New Art Gallery Walsall in 2001.

Ola’s subject is modern architecture though his work owes less to architectural photographers than to Minimalist art. He isolates details of buildings and produces compelling images that are rich in colour, texture and light

This exhibition is part of an international tour which will open at KIASMA in Helsinki, Finland in February 2009.

A publication accompanies the exhibition, published by Hatje Cantz.
