Screen, skin, grid, fragment, facade, section, detail, light, colour, structure, and reflection: Ola Kolehmainen's architecturally derived images challenge and illuminate abstract and sublime qualities manifested by photographic appearance. If in the first instance as photographs they are born of mechanism, there is also undeniably a sense in which they are visual apparitions extracted from the world. And I use the verb 'to extract' in order to specify that the photographs do not seek implicitly to document, point to, or identify the architectural sources whence they are taken. That information is provided should you need it, but the primary intention is to create a memorable image that is true to itself.
Mark Gisbourne, 'Screenplay: Mirrors of Solitude', Ola Kolehmainen:Fraction, Abstraction, Recreation, Hatje Cantz, 2007, p. 87
